The quest is sponsored by the National Australia Bank at all levels of the Quest.
Guyra Central School student Melissa Hawthorne was the only candidate this year. Melissa is a year eleven student who went through all stages of the clubs judging, interview and public speaking process.
Youth of the Year Chairman Jim Betts said that Melissa spoke well on her selected topic and the two, two minute impromptu questions prepared by the panel of judges.
The judging panel included NAB representative Mrs Kristie Wilson, Mayor of the Armidale Regional Council Simon Murray and Guyra Show Society representative Mrs Rita Williams.
Melissa will now go on to represent the Lions Club of Guyra and her school at the Regional final which will be held in the New Year.
