Cole became a Rotary district finalist after moving to the next level in a series of club, sub-regional and regional competitions. He will join five other inspirational and talented students who will compete in the contest finals.

Cole has demonstrated strong oratory skills, poise and passion in a competition that has attracted over 150 high school students from across San Diego, Imperial, and Riverside counties. Cole’s outstanding speech is about the positive impact being a Boy Scout has made in his life.

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.
