Six students from Harrisburg school district competed for prizes in the Rotary Club of Harrisburg's 2nd annual .
The students each selected a topic of their choice and applied the Rotary Four-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?
The speech was judged on content, integration and presentation skills. A five to eight minute speech was required. Our three Rotarian judges, Karen Snider, Carolyn Dumaresq, and Virginia Roth had a tough time as all six students presented an A class show! In 1st place was Joshua Ramirez of Sci-Tech, with a prize of $300. His speech questioned the age old "Can money buy Happiness?" In 2nd place was Shakeira Banks of Sci-Tech winning $200 for her speech on social anxiety and how she overcame the issue. In 3rd place was Tyresha Vaughn-Blanding from Harrisburg High winning $100 for her speech about the impact of your surroundings and how it can impact your life.
