THE DISTRICT 7430 FOUR WAY TEST SPEECH CONTEST

Horsham Rotary Club Level Contest

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 contest is a three level contest, with Club Contest First Place finishers advancing to one of four Regional Contests and those four First Place finishers advancing to the finals at the District 7430 Conference.

Topics and Theme

Each contestant chooses the topic of his/her speech. The purpose of the speech is persuade others while applying the principles of the 4-Way Test. The issue to be addressed should be some-thing from the speaker’s personal experience or general knowledge. There are no restrictions regarding the choice of topic as long as it is not blatantly offensive. If a contestant or coach is in doubt about the appropriateness of a topic, he or she should check with the Club Contest Chair. The decision of the Contest Chair will be final.
The 4-Way Test
Of the things we think, say, or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?

concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL
and BETTER
FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL
to all concerned?

During the spring semester many Rotary Clubs hold a Four-Way Test Speech Competition.
