Meet the 2020 Coronado Rotary Speech Contest Winners

Sofia Symon, Samantha Russell, Blake Bergener, Adelina Rocha, and Coronado Rotary Speech Contest Chair Heidi Bergener.

The Annual Rotary Four-Way Speech Contest, providing scholarship prizes to high school students, is underway. Rotarians were treated to inspiring speeches from Coronado High School students where First Place and $200 was awarded to Sofia Symon who discussed the inequality of women in many countries around the world. Second Place and $100 was awarded to Samantha Russell and she discussed the fashion industry supply chain complexities. Blake Bergener and Adelina Rocha received Finalist awards of $50 each. Blake spoke about the trials and tribulations about being a new kid in school and what to do about it, and Adelina applied the Four-Way Test to having courage. Sofia and Samantha will be representing the Coronado Rotary at the sub-regional level of the contest in March.
