The 4-Way Test of Rotary is central to living our lives ethically. 

The Rotary 4-Way Test of the things we think, say or do is:

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?


The Speech Contest is intended to engage students in grades 10 - 12 in this very practical and simple test. The contest is open to any student currently in attendance at a public or private high school, charter school or home schooled within the Hershey or Middletown area school district area. Any topic which a contestant feels is timely, interesting and important may be used for the contest speech as long as it is not profane, obscene, unpatriotic, or racist. The topic must be specifically subjected to the Four-Way Test, and must be affected throughout the body of the speech and is not to be reserved for concluding statements only.
