The Rotary Four-Way Test, which was created in the early 1930s, has been used by businesses, industry, government groups, civic organizations, schools, colleges and universities. An ethical tenet in today's culture, it said "Of the things that we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? And will it be beneficial to all concerned?"

Winners will be decided by three professionally qualified judges. First place will receive $350; second place will be awarded $250; third place wins $150 and the best novice speaker will receive $50.
