High School Students Win Rotary Club's Four-Way Speech Contest

High School Students Win Rotary Club's Four-Way Speech Contest

 

Lakota high school students recently put their speaking skills to the test as part of the annual Four-Way Speech Contest sponsored by the West Chester/Liberty Township Rotary Club. Rotary International adopted the Four-Way Test as a measure for Rotarian interactions at work and in their personal lives. 

The competition gives students a chance to apply the test to their personal lives and experiences while talking about the concepts of leadership and service to others. Four-to-six minute speeches are presented from memory without the aid of a podium, notes, displays or props.

Those making it to the local finals included Lakota West’s Hanann Marawi and Kasi Woods, while Rachel Wittmer and Josie Cappel represented Lakota East. All four won cash awards for their speeches. Rachel won the top prize, and Hanann came in second – both went on to compete in the district competition at Wright State and performed well.
