SC students in speech contest
GREENWICH Seniors Elizabeth Gravely and Ana Maldonado recently competed in the Greenwich Rotary Club 4-way Test Speech Contest March 13. The contest was held as a special program of the Club's weekly regular meetings.
Each student had to compose an original speech of four to seven minutes that addressed the questions of the Rotary 4-way test: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Gravely's topic centered on religious education in public schools. Maldonado's speech focused on the recently passed smoking ban in public places.
Rotarians used a scoring rubric to select Maldonado to advance to the Rotary District 6600 competition, held in Van Wert March 24. Although not placing in the top three, Maldonado received a certificate of participation and a "Leading the Way" Rotary pin for her speech performance at the District 6600 competition.
Greenwich Rotary meets at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday at the United Methodist Church parlor.
