Rotary invites students to enter 4-way test contest

Service clubs — Students have the opportunity to enter a creative media contest for cash prizes


All seventh- and eighth-grade students in the region are invited by Rotary District 5100 of Oregon and Wash­ing­ton to submit entries for the creative media division of its annual 4 Way Test Con­test.

Students can film and upload three- to four-minute skits, songs, poems or dramatic pieces to Youtube or Vimeo to demonstrate the use of the 4 Way Test that guides Rotarian behavior and decision making: is it truthful; is it fair to all concerned; will it build goodwill and better friendships; and is it beneficial to all concerned.

Winning videos will be selected and shown at the District Conference May 17 at the Salem Conference Center.

“This new category of competition, in its second year, allows all students in our district the chance to enter even if their school is not participating in the speech and essay divisions,” said contest chairman Rob LeChevallier.

This year’s contest is sponsored by Columbia Bank, the Avamere Family of Com­panies and Kevin Costello with Hasson Realtors. Cash prizes will be awarded in each category; $500 for first place, $250 for second and $100 for third.

Rotary District 5100 encompasses the northern third of Oregon and the southwest part of Washington with 75 clubs from the coast to Baker City. Rotarians participate in service projects at home and abroad to eliminate polio, bring people out of poverty, provide clean water, promote literacy and more.
