“dig into your historical archives”
- fundraisers, (can you guess the club that sold manure with all proceeds going to the Foundation?)
- grant projects, and (DDF Grants, Global scholars, Health, Hunger and Humanity Grants, please reach back into history)
- any story abut your club and The Rotary Foundation. (Remember Group Study Exchange, Awards for Technical Training, Discovery Grants, First Paul Harris Fellow in your club, etc.)
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.Full information for Assistant Governors and clubs
