"4 Way Test" Speech
High school students are invited to "walk in" and compete for cash in this Saturday morning's public speaking contest at the Boys and Girls Club, 520 Jones Boulevard, and sponsored by the Murfreesboro Rotary Club. The talk must be focused on "Rotary's 4-Way Test" and how it applies to the subject of the speaker's choice.
Rotarian Derek Blake said, “This is a great learning experience for students to hone their public speaking skills and have the potential of winning cash.”
No Fee To Participate
The competition will be at 9:30 Saturday morning, March 8, 2014 at the Murfreesboro Boys and Girls Club, 820 Jones Boulevard. It is open to any student who is in the 9th through 12th grades on the day of the competition. They can attend public or private schools or be a home school student. There is no fee for participating.
First place winner receives $100 cash, second gets $75 and the third place finisher walks away with $50 cash. Murfreesboro Rotary’s first place recipient has the opportunity to compete at the district level in April for a $1,000 scholarship.
Blake noted that the only student not eligible would be first place winners from previous years. He also stressed that the talk must be at least 4-minutes, but no longer than 6-minutes and that Rotary’s “4 -Way Test” must strongly tie to the topic of your choice.
Again, "walk ins" are welcome. All persons who wish to compete must currently be students in the ninth through twelfth grades. If you have questions about this coming Saturday's event, phone Rotarian Blake at 615-890-2582, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
