Four-Way Test Essay Contest
District 7770 is proud to announce the 2015-16 inaugural Four-Way Test Essay contest. District Governor, Rod Funderburk, is challenging every club to sponsor the essay contest in their local high school(s). Individual club winners will be entered into the District 7770 essay contest. The top three district winners will receive cash prizes and will be presented at the District 7770 Conference.
We are seeking to have all 80 clubs participate in this inaugural essay contest. First, it will build a student-centered sense of community among the district clubs. Second, it has the potential of raising awareness for Rotary’s Four-Way Test to every high school student in our district. Third, we believe that this will encourage students and prepare them for the writing of their college essay.
This is an opportunity for clubs to tell their Rotary Story by involving students and educators in understanding the character building aspects of the Four-Way Test, Details of the contest are available on the files tab of the district database.
