4 Way Test Contest

In the spring, high school students participate in a 4-Way Speech Contest for a District-wide contest to win a scholarship. The Rotary Club of Columbia holds a contest for students at the Freestate Challenge Program Cadets & Students in Aberdeen. Four to five of the students give their speeches at a regular club meeting and members choose the one that will represent the club at the district-wide contest. In addition, the Club gives the speech winner a $500 scholarship. In the fall, a 4-Way Test contest is held as well with the Club giving a $500 scholarship but the winner does not go to the district level.

The theme for the contest is based on Rotary’s 4-Way Test.
