Four Way Test Speech Contest- This event was first held in our own Rotary District 5330, started by the Yucaipa Rotary Club.  It has now spread throughout most of the Rotary districts.  Each club holds its own contest, giving cash prizes to the winners, and the finalists compete at the annual District Conference.  We have had some outstanding orators.  In recent years, our speakers have come from a dedicated psychology teacher at Chaparral High School, Thea Titzer, who holds after-school coaching for the speakers.  Very few high schools have classes in speech or debate, so this effort is much appreciated by our club.  The speeches are crafted by the high school students on various subjects, but the speech must include the Rotary Four Way Test in its content.  Every week the Temecula Sunrise Rotary club members recite the Four Way Test, of the things we think, say or do: 1st - Is it the truth?  2nd - Is it fair to all concerned?  3rd - Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  4th - Will it be beneficial to all concerned?  Many Rotary clubs provide Four Way Test plaques to classrooms because these are goals that all good citizens should strive to attain.
