Congratulations Adrian and Natelie!
Each competing student delivered a 5 to 7 minute speech on the application of the Rotary 4 Way Test; Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The Speech Contest was hosted by the Rotary Club of Wichita Falls North and the Rotary Club of Wichita Falls Southwest. Judges were selected from the membership of each club. First place prize was $750 and 2nd place award was $500.
After hearing all the contestants. judges score the speeches and select the 1st and 2nd Place winner. In addition to bragging rights, the winners can choose to compete at the District 5790 Conference and Assembly to be held April 25th & 26th in Denton, Texas.
Both the first and second place winners are quite busy, Adrian a pianist and musician and Nathalie came from Old High's Coyote Girls Softball game where she plays as shortstop. Their busy lives did not stop either student from delivering a steller speech. The judges had their work cut out.
