Every February & March, Rotary Club of Carlsbad hosts this speech contest for students! Click to read more.

It’s hard to choose the coolest thing Rotarians do, but many feel that it’s GOT to be the 4-Way Test Speech Contest. This Rotary District 5340 program is designed to promote information about, and awareness of, the 4-Way Test among high school students, teachers, and administrators. The District’s 64 Rotary clubs ask high school speech, English, and history teachers to nominate 3-5 students to speak at a club meeting. These students are expected to speak for 5-7 minutes on any subject, analyzing how their issue is impacted by the 4-Way Test, asking:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
