CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield Rotary Club recently held its annual Four-Way Speech Contest at the Lock Haven University.
Shown are participants from the junior class. From left are: Alex Coval, Katrina Spencer (first place), Luke McGonigal, Madison Jones (third place), Makayla Ross, Michael Ternoway, Quentin Edwards and Wyatt Porter (second place).
Among the world’s most-widely printed and quoted statements of ethics, The Four-Way Test was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor.
It poses the following questions:
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to everyone?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to everyone?
Participants had to write and deliver a speech that was timely, important and wherein the Four-Way Test would be subjected throughout.
Teacher Mrs. Tangi Borden was also thanked for all of her help with the project.
