Annual Speech Contest Winners Announced
Bow Rotary held its annual 4-Way Test Speech Contest on Tuesday March 22nd via Zoom this year.  We had four contestants, and each spoke on great subjects that they were passionate about.  Each speech had to refer to all four parts of the Rotary 4-Way Test, which is the moral code Rotarians live by.
The Rotary 4-Way Test
   • Is it the truth?
   • Is it fair to all concerned?
   • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
   • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Each speaker had no less than five minutes and no more than seven minutes to deliver their speech with minimal use of notes.  Anything under five or over seven minutes was an automatic disqualification.  Cash prizes were awarded for 1st - $500, 2nd - $300 and 3rd place $100.  Three winners were chosen by a panel of Rotary and non-Rotary judges.
 
First Place was awarded to Piper Watford, a Bow High 11th Grader.  Second Place was won by Louisa Hoffman, a German exchange student in grade 11 at Bow High.  The Third Place winner was Christopher "Cy” Yvars, also an 11th grader at Bow High.  Our fourth contestant was Abigail Denise who spoke very passionately about the values of being honest and truthful in all we do.  The Rotary Club’s committee chair was. Dean Cascadden.  Top three winners were invited to speak at our Rotary meeting on April 1st
