Are you a Siuslaw or Mapleton-area high school student (public, private, or home-schooled) in grades 9-12 who cares about ethical standards and behavior in today’s world? If you are, the Rotary Club of Florence invites you to share a subject you care about by participating in the 2023 Rotary International 4-Way Test Speech Contest.
The contest will be held in person at the Florence Events Center, 715 Quince Street, at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2023.  The top three finalists at the contest will present their speeches to a meeting of the Florence Rotary Club on Tuesday, April 25, at 12 noon.

All participants will be required to take the Rotary 4-Way Test and apply it to real life throughout their speeches. The 4-Way Test has four principles:

Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The choices for topics are endless…would the Super Bowl pass the 4-Way Test? What about your homework assignments? How about TikTok?
