The Rotary Club of Frisco which meets each Thursday at the River Club at Toyota Stadium recently announced the winners of the club’s annual 4-Way Test Speech Competition.
Students compete annually with local clubs across the nation and then at higher levels with their speeches. Winners will compete at the District level in late April for a $1,000 scholarship. The 4-Way test is a guiding principle of values and truth for Rotarians.
“The 4-Way Test Speech Contest is an annual competition for young high school students. They are given the opportunity to compete with others in crafting a short speech, approximately 5-7 minutes, which describes an instance where they have either experienced or observed in another the usage of the 4-Way Test as a template for handling a decision/dilemma in everyday life,” explained Nelson Hewitt, spokesman for the Rotary Club of Frisco and organizer of the contest.
The winners at the club level received scholarships. Winning first place at Rotary Club of Frisco was Elle Osborne of Wakeland High School, $250; second place Anjika Bhalia of Independence High School, $150; and third place Jillian Smith of Frisco High School, $100.
