Congratulations to Amy Chen, a 10th grade student at Brush High School, who participated in the Hillcrest Rotary Club 4 Way Speech Contest and won second place. The purpose of the speech was to solve an ethical problem using the principles of the Four-Way Test. The Four-Way Test is one of the guiding principles for Rotarians of the things we think, say and do.
1.Is it the TRUTH?
2.Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3.Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4.Is it BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Each student gave a 4-7 minute speech on any topic, issue, or situation. The ethical problem to be solved was something from the speaker's personal experience or general knowledge. There were no restrictions regarding the choice of topic as long as it was not blatantly offensive.
