The Four Way Test speech contest is a competition for 9-12 graders. It requires each participating student to create and present a 5-7 minute speech on a subject of their choice, applying the Four Way Test to guide their thinking and their actions.  
 
The Rotary Four-Way Test is:  Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
