Springfield High School sophomore Sam Hensel-Hunter was selected as the winner of the recent "4-Way Test" Speech Contest sponsored by the Springfield Rotary Club. Thompson received a first place award of $75 and will represent the club in a regional competition in Charlestown, NH on April 18.
SHS junior Kelsey Christensen was the winner of $50 for second place and junior Laurel Porter received a $25 prize for third. Sophomore Erika Anderson also participated in the event.
Each participant was required to do a speech of between five and seven minutes on how to apply Rotary's "Four Way Test" in our everyday relationships with other people. The work of Rotary is based upon what is called the "Four Way Test" which is:
• Is It The Truth?
• Is It Fair To All Concerned?
•Will It Build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
• Will It Be Beneficial To All Concerned?
The winner of the regional competition will compete in the District Finals in May in Burlington for a top prize of $700.
