High School students prepare a 5 to 7 minute talk on any subject but they must incorporate the Rotary four way test in the talk. The students in this competition ranged from sophomores to seniors. There were two winners here and they go onto the finals at the District Training Assembly on April 7 in Meriden. They were remarkable with great poise and all with something important to say. One of the winners had competed before and did not win but practice makes public speaking easier.
|Here's a sophomore|
|And here is another competitor, a senior, there were eight competitors|
|And here are the Judges, there were five including a local Trumbull councilman|
And here's the 4-way test.
The 4-Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
