Nine El Dorado Hills teens participated in the Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills’ annual speech contest Wednesday, sharing their thoughts on this year’s theme: Engage Youth … Change Lives.

Oak Ridge High School sophomore Mathew Cruz, 15, took home first place, winning $200 and a spot in the regional semifinal. That competition will take place at 5:30 p.m on April 10 at the Roseville Theater, 241 Vernon St. in Roseville. The regional first-place winner will participate in the finals at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, Nev., on May 3.

ORHS senior Ashley Abraham, 17, earned a second-place finish and won $100. Sophomore Ryan Schwary, 15, was the third-place finisher, winning $50.

Rotary Club President Coy Baugh complimented each student for their excellent work and noted that he was thankful he didn’t have to judge the competition as all the speakers did very well.
