Byesville Rotary held a Four Way Test Speech competition at their morning meeting. The Four-Way Test speech contest challenges students to think about how personal ethics affects their lives. The students are asked to present a speech on the nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide Rotarians use in their personal and professional relationships.
The guide consists of 24 words: 1) Is it the truth? 2) Is it fair to all concerned? 3) Will it build good will and better friendships? 4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Each student competing in the speech contest gave a 5-7 minute original speech. Students were evaluated on speech content, organization, and delivery.
After hearing speeches from each contestant, Byesville Rotary awarded first place to Annie Kackley and presented her with a $300 check. John Barba was awarded 2ed place and presented with a $200 check. Annie will to represent the club at the District contest.
