.  District 5500 Virtual Four-Way Test Speech Contest

Saturday April 9th,, 2022 at 9:00 a.m.

 
 
 
The Purpose of the Four-Way Test Speech Contest
 
The purpose of the Four-Way Test Speech Contest is to foster ethics in everyday life, as well as in business. The contest is designed to introduce high school students to the Rotary principles of ethics and service, and to involve local Rotary Clubs with the youth of their communities. It also is aimed at encouraging young people to learn to express themselves well in public. In nearly every profession, the ability to express one’s thoughts and ideas clearly, concisely, and persuasively is an important skill.
 
The specific goals of the contest are as follows:
 
  • To acquaint youth with Rotary, and, specifically, the tenets of the Four-Way Test.
  • To demonstrate and enhance Rotarians’ commitment to youth.
  • To heighten awareness of Rotary among parents, school officials, and the community.
  • To recognize, encourage, and reward accomplishment in our youth.
  • To encourage high school students to develop public speaking skills.
