4-WAY TEST COMPETITION
Today, Dan Wigton will introduce the contestants for our annual Four-Way Test speech contest. The Committee Members are: Chair - Dan Wigton, Wayne Rowe, Sandra Rowe, Bev Ford, Karen Ream, Valerie Wigton.
ROTARY FOUR-WAY TEST SPEECH CONTEST RULES:
This contest is an opportunity for any Marion City/County high school student – a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior in a public, private, or home school. They may have completed and won in previous years, but with a different speech. Contestants must compose and orally deliver an original speech applying the Four-Way Test to an important issue in our everyday relationships with other people. The test asks the following questions: Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to ALL concerned?
3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to ALL concerned?
Contestants should prepare a speech with facts, statistics, stories, examples and quotations. The speech must be 5 to 7 minutes with a 15 second leeway (points off for going over or under). It may be memorized or minimal notes may be used, but reading is discouraged. Contestants should not mention their name, school, or city. Judging will be based upon the performance criteria and point system as recommended by Rotary District 6600.
The invocation will be given by Rob Howard and Jason Price will greet you.
