Avon Middle School students placed first, second and third in the contest which challenged the students to write an essay (no more than 1,500 words) on the topic, “Rotary’s Four Way Test and What it Means to the Conduct of my Daily Life.” The Four-Way Test includes answering the following questions related to what we say and do: 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 purpose of the essay is for the students to explain their personal understanding of the Four-Way Test and how it relates to his/her life experiences and/or society. How does it influence what they say and do? http://thefourwaytest.com/history-of-the-four-way-test/
