High School Students Pass Rotary's 4-Way Test

Area high school students participate in the Pottstown Rotary Club's 4-Way Contest at Brookside Country Club

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown Rotary Club.

One of the worlds’ most widely printed and quoted statements of ethics is The 4 Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor.

Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The 4 Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. 

It asks the following four questions of the things we think, say and do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The Pottstown Rotary's 4-Way Test speech competition began on Saturday, March 24 at Brookside Country Club and culminates on April 28th at the Rotary District 7340 Conference which will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Reading.
The winners were, from right, Logan Ruyak, 1st place; 
Chloe Sullivan, 3rd place; and Barry Wang, 2nd place.

The conference is attended by 300-500 Rotarians from district 7340. This year the conference will also include Interact clubs from the area.

This event has proven to be a tremendous learning and confidence building experience for the students in the past. The results of the competition are:
  • First Place: Logan Ruyak of Pottstown High School
  • Second Place: Barry Wang of The Hill School
