4-Way Test Speech Contest

In adherence to the value we place in strong public speaking exercises for our youth, each year West Covina Rotary Club hosts a speech contest.  The purpose of the speech contest is to get high school students thinking and articulating their thoughts in a public speaking format.  A different topic is chosen every year.  The student must then integrate the topic and the 4-Way Test in a speech not to exceed 8 minutes.

The Four-Way Test:

  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?
