Rotary District 5810 (50+ clubs in North Texas) recently held its 2017 Speech Contest at Collin College. Our club winner, Caleb Cummingson the left, came in 1st and won $1,000!   Caleb is homeschooled and represented Apollos Speech and Debate.
Elle Hagar (Lovejoy HS) was 2nd and Reginald Dunlap (South Grand Prairie HS) was 3rd.  In 2015, Kelly Graham from PISD Vines HS came in 1st at District. 
4 Way speech must be original and be about applying the Rotary Four Way Test  to an important issue in society or in a relationship.  The Test asks the following four questions:
Is it the truth? 
Is it fair to all concerned? 
Will it build goodwill & better friendships? 
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Speeches should combine facts, stories & quotations.  They should also mention at least one of the Four Way Test principles.
In Plano we are very proud of our students and grateful to our members that serve as judges. Well done!
