The Springfield Rotary Club held its annual "4-Way Speech Contest" at this week's meeting. The contest is for Springfield High School students to speak about how the Rotary "4-Way Test" applies to situations in their lives.  SHS Sophomore Zada Grant was the winner of the $100 1st Prize for her speech about the current national political climate for women's rights and laws relating to abortion. 
SHS Junior Angellina Woychosky ("The High Cost of Healthcare") and Senior Alicia Ostrom ("Environmental products help sustainability") received $75 and $50, respectively, for 2nd and 3rd Place.
 
Grant will represent the Springfield Club in the Rotary District Semifinals this weekend in Henniker NH. The top 4 finishers from that event will compete in the District Finals in Hanover, NH later in April.
 
The Four-Way Test: 
  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?
