Four-Way Test Speech Contest 

The Four-Way Test Speech Contest

The Clubs of Rotary District 7360 are holding speech contests at the Club, Region, and District levels in the spring of 2023.
The purpose of the Four-Way Test is to foster the principles of ethics in everyday life as well as in business. The Speech Contest is designed to introduce high school students to Rotary and the Four-Way Test by creating interest through a competitive speech contest sponsored by their local Rotary club.
The Four-Way Test:
Of the things we think, say, and do:
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendship?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The speech should be about how to apply the Four-Way Test to a part of everyday life. There are many speech examples online.
The Club winners will compete in a Regional Contest, and the Regional winners will compete in the Finals at a District event held in May. The District winner will receive $2000, the second place participant will receive $1000, and two runners-up will each receive $500.

Public, private and home-schooled school students in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to enter the contest. No student may be a contestant in more than one Rotary Club speech contest in any one year. A club may sponsor a speech contest in more than one high school but may send only one representative to the Regional contest.

Previous winners of the District Level speech competition (District Champion) are ineligible to compete in subsequent years, but other  previous competitors may compete again.
