Murrieta Rotary in action
MURRIETA ROTARY TO HOLD SPEECH CONTEST MARCH 19th
Murrieta Rotary’s Four-Way Test Speech competition will be held starting at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, March 19, at the Murrieta Valley Unified School District headquarters, 41870 McAlby Court, Murrieta.
The Four-Way Test, which was created in the early 1930s, has been used by businesses, industry, government groups, civic organizations, schools and colleges. It states:
Of the things that we think, say or do:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Speech contestants are to address topics of current interest and importance and are to include and use concepts from the Four-Way Test as methods of discussion or analysis in the body of the speech. Students must currently attend a public or private high school, charter school or home school. No student can compete in more than one Rotary Club contest in any one year.
Prizes of $200, $100 and $50, respectively, will be awarded for first, second and third places in the local contest. The first place winner will advance to a District Elimination Round, scheduled for Saturday, April 25, in Riverside.
The Four-Way Test Speech Contest, along with other educational and community activities, is made possible by Murrieta Rotary’s annual fund-raising event, which this last year was the Patriot’s Ball, held at the conclusion of the Field of Honor in November.
