Truly exemplary essays submitted on Rotary's 4-Way-Test from 15 Rotary-sponsored InterAct Clubs and 28 candidates represented a dazzling array of talent, achievement, and dedication to Rotary service ideals, making it incredibly challenging to select only three for the 2013 scholarship awards. Nevertheless, our three winning entries rose to the top based on the Judges’ highest ranks for originality, substance, grammar, spelling, writing quality, contest conformity, and overall quality. Congratulations to our winners on a job well done! We commend EVERY candidate from across the District for their fine work-product, for embodying the outstanding ethical principles described in the submissions, and for their service to humanity through Rotary’s InterAct program.  Without question, each has a bright future ahead!
