LAST CALL!!!!!!!!

Interested high school students, their teachers or parents should contact La Verne Gold immediately at 706-724-5544, email, lgold@uwcsra.org .

The local Rotary District 6920 competition will be held on Monday, February 23, 9:00 am on the first floor of the conference room of the Enterprise Mill located at 1450 Greene Street.  First, second and third place winners will be selected. Our Club may enter up to three contestants. Local prizes will be available.  The final speech will be given during the opening lunch session; time and place to be announced later.

Winners at the local level will have a chance to be selected for a $1,000 scholarship at the Zone competition scheduled for May 1‐3, 2015 in Augusta.  Rotary’s 2014 local winner was Emma Kate Few, a 10th grader from Davidson Fine Arts.  She competed at the Zone level and received a $1,000 scholarship.

Initiated in 1997 by Dublin Rotarian and Past District Governor, Preston Johnson, the District 6920 Rotary Speech Contest is a special project engaging Rotarians, educators, and students in a meaningful and rewarding opportunity for personal development of our nation’s future leaders. Originally named the   4‐ Way Test Speech Contest, the contest evolved over the years to focus on the current International President’s Annual Theme or the 4‐Way Test. The 4‐Way Test. Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

No matter which theme is used the basic premise remains: the speech contest requires students to research and learn about Rotary in preparing a short speech; in doing so, the students as well as all audience members receive an invaluable review of the great service which is Rotary.

Students should develop their speeches to fit within the 3 to 4 minute time constraint. Speeches less than three minutes or greater than four minutes will be progressively penalized in scoring. The short speech should be deliverable without the use of note cards or written copy but the student may utilize a few small note cards with limited words for reference if necessary.

Interested high school students, their teachers or parents should contact La Verne Gold immediately at 706-724-5544, email, lgold@uwcsra.org .

Vote now for books you read from the current nominees
Teens Read & Rate!

The Georgia Peach Book Award works to promote reading and literacy skills in teens. Each year, a committee of school and public librarians reads widely to choose a list of twenty nominated titles. Then young adults choose books from among that list to read and rate. The books that earn the highest number of readers and ratings become the Peach Book and Honor Books.
