The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The purpose of the 4-Way Test Speech Contest is to foster the principles of ethics in every day life as well as in business. The Contest is designed to introduce 
high school students to Rotary by creating interest through a competitive speech contest, sponsored by their local Rotary club.
The specific goals of the Contest are:
  1. To acquaint a large number of youth with Rotary, and specifically, the tenets of the 4 -Way Test.
  2. To demonstrate and enhance Rotarians' commitment to youth.
  3. To heighten awareness of Rotary among parents, school officials, and the community at large.
  4. To recognize, encourage and reward hard work and accomplishment in our youth.
  5. To provide an opportunity for Rotarians to participate in a Community and Vocational Service which focuses on the 4-Way Test as our standard of behavior.
Quakertown Rotary Club sponsors a 4-Way Test Speech Contest at Quakertown Area and Palisades High Schools.  Up to six students from each school may participate. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three contestants.  The winner will go on to participate in the Regional Contest, and possibly the District Contest.
Club volunteers judge, tally and time the speeches.
