4-Way Test Speech Contest


Please join us at this Thursday’s Rotary luncheon for our annual 4-Way Test Speech Contest!

Students from four local high schools (School for Creative & Performing Arts, Clark High School, Walnut Hills High School, and Wyoming High School) will be competing, and an esteemed panel of judges will be on hand to select the winner. The winner will then go on to represent our Club at the district-wide Rotary speech contest at Wright State University in April, competing against students from more than 30 high schools in southwest Ohio!

The topic of the student speeches is the ethical standard used by Rotarians worldwide, and how it can be applied to a personal or community issue. Each of these four Cincinnati high schools is partnering with our Rotary Club in this effort, and will have faculty members in attendance. The students will be bringing their parents or other guests.

This is an inspiring event where we get to hear talented young people articulate and apply Rotary’s core ethical principles. We’ve had great attendance in years past, and look forward to another exciting contest. Please join us this Thursday!

The panel of judges will include:
Melanie Bates (Cincinnati Board of Education)
Ozie Davis (Cincinnati Board of Education)
D. Lynn Meyers (Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati)
Polly Giblin (Cincinnati Toastmasters)
