The annual Rotary Four-Way Test Speech Contest provides cash prizes of up to $1500 to high school students. The speeches are based on the “Four-Way Test” principles followed by Rotary International:

  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?

The culmination of the speech competition, the District 5340 Finals, will be held at Liberty Station’s Conference Center hosted by the San Diego Rotary Club 33 at 11:30 a.m. on April 26.
