Important Information from the District

We are going to Do Good in the World right in our own backyards with many of these grants, which are available because generous Rotarians like you donated to the Foundation!

“dig into your historical archives”

For our November 12th Foundation Centennial Dinner we are looking for story boards (think science fair three-panels or PowerPoints) telling the stories of

During the spring semester many Rotary Clubs hold a Four-Way Test Speech Competition. It is a competition offered to high school students where the student must prepare a five to seven minute speech to illustrate the Rotary Four-Way Test.

The student is judged on Content (50%), Organization (30%), and Delivery (20%). The student must follow the Four-Way Test Theme throughout, must relate the speech to his/her own activities, must present a human-interest appeal, and must choose language that is clear, vivid and persuasive. The student must demonstrate organization of thought including an introduction, clear and orderly points and a brief conclusion that drives home the point of application. And finally, the student must be effective in his or her speech delivery including volume, grammar, gestures and attitude toward the audience.
