Now is the time to make plans for your club’s participation in the District’s 4-Way Test Speech Contest (FWTSC).  High school students, grades 9 through 12 are eligible to participate.  Each contestant chooses the topic of his/her speech. The purpose of the speech is to persuade others while applying the principles of the Rotary 4-Way Test.   Clubs are to work with the high school(s) in their geographic area to arrange for a club contest.  The club winner proceeds to a regional contest on April 2, 2022 and those winners compete in the District final held at the District Assembly April 9, 2022.  At the Annual Convention April 23, 2022 the champions from the three collaborating Districts will make their winning presentations.  Cash prizes are awarded at all levels.  In the past 25 clubs have participated.  More details are given in the FWTSC Manual.  Other exhibits are also provided on this website.  Links to YouTube videos of previous District competitors are also provided.
