Cypress Falls High School junior Roshni Chandwani won second place in an oratorical contest at the Key Club International Convention (ICON) held recently in Orlando, Fla.
The contest prompted Key Club members to describe how they would bring a global campaign such as The Eliminate Project to their school and local community.
Chandwani proposed for every member to change the world by being a “SUPERhero”—Speaking, Uniting, Preparing, Executing, and Revising. Her oratory taught Key Club members to follow the five steps in order to have a substantial impact on their communities.
Additionally, she included information about the significance of The Eliminate Project, an organization determined to eradicate maternal/neonatal tetanus (MNT) from the world by 2015. “I was honored to receive such a distinction because The Eliminate Project is something I’ve been working on for the past two years, and I’ve been involved with a lot of fund raisers for the project,” Chandwani says.
Chandwani was also selected to serve as the convention liason during the upcoming school year. In her position, she will be in charge of coordinating the 2013 district convention—choosing the theme, encouraging participation, and planning the specifics of the weekend.
“Roshni has been an enthusiastic member of our Key Club, and I couldn’t be prouder of everything she has accomplished,” says Cypress Falls teacher and Key Club sponsor Kathie Kiklas.
