Cash Prizes for Coronado Rotary contest!

CHS and CoSA students in grades 9 through 12 are invited to enter the 2017 Rotary International Four-Way Speech Contest. The competitions will be held in February with the club winner receiving $200 and moving on to a higher level competition. Last year, then-CHS sophomore Lydia Mellor won the local, regional and Championship competitions, winning a total of $1,600 in prize money!

The Rotary Four-Way Test, one of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethics, has been translated into more than 100 languages. The Four-Way Test asks the following four questions of the things we think, say, or do:

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?

Participants choose topics they are passionate about and present their speeches for judging at Rotary Club semi-finals on February 7 and 8 at CHS in the Black Box. Four speakers will be selected to vie for cash awards at the Coronado Club Championship on February 22. First Place $200; Second Place $100; Finalists $50 each. 

The Coronado Club winner will advance to Rotary District level competition with additional cash prizes in a total of more than $1,000.
