4 Way Test Speech Contest

Each Spring, the Rotary Club of Florence conducts a 4-Way Test High School Speech Contest. Florence area high school students (public, private or home-schooled) in grades 9-12 who care about ethical standards and behavior are invited to share a subject they care about by participating in the Rotary International 4-WayTest Speech Contest. Three finalists are presented with certificates and cash prizes totaling $1000 at a Rotary meeting. The winning speaker is also invited to compete in the district level contest.

All participants will be required to take the Rotary 4-Way Test and apply it to real life throughout their speeches. The 4-Way Test has four principles:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The choices for topics are endless…would the Super Bowl pass the 4-Way Test? What about your homework assignments? How about social networking? All speeches must be original and may not be less than 5 minutes or more than 7 minutes.
