HOW IT WORKS:

  • Students are invited to craft a powerful, 5-7 minute speech akin to TEDtm, tackling an ethical issue using the Rotary 4-Way Test.
  • Club-level contests select winners by March 29, 2024, district support is available!
  • The journey continues at the Semi-Finals on April 6,(location TBD) leading to the ultimate face-off at the District Conference on April 27 at the Desmond in Malvern.
 

IMPORTANT POINTS:

  • Open to ALL high school students (not just INTERACTORS) to share their passionate voices.
  • For schools lacking a sponsoring club, we’re dedicated to finding the right sponsor.
  • Should a school have a single participant, they must present to the club before advancing to the Semi-Final level.
  • Clubs can send a maximum of two students, with potential for two from each school if sponsoring more than one school.
  • Schools with numerous participants may consider internal selections to streamline club entries.
