They also had to give a four-minute speech on any topic chosen by the student, followed by a one-minute impromptu speech.
Andrew, who is in year 11, spoke on the civil unrest in Syria.
Judges included John Robertson, Camden mayor Lara Symkowiak, Shirley Ransom and Susan Schrader.

Customers given grounds for helping homeless
Local cafe R Coffee gave customers good grounds for helping fight homelessness.
More than 302 cafes — including R Coffee in Camden and Picton — signed up to the CafeSmart campaign which saw $1 from every cup of coffee sold on one particular day, recently, donated to charity StreetSmart which raises money and awareness for projects and services targeting homelessness.
R Coffee Picton on Argyle Street raised about $840 last year, however, with the Camden store (at the back of Whitman’s Arcade, Argyle Street) now open, too, owner Ryan Tierney set the benchmark even higher. They raised $1094 through the Picton store and $980 at Camden during Homeless Persons Week recently.
