Perham Rotary Club’s Four Way Test Winners this year were Matt Formanek (1st place), Lexi Richter (2nd place) and Destiny Mitchell (3rd place).  Each participant is asked to write an essay on a subject of interest and then apply the Four Way Test to that essay.

The Four Way Test is as follows:

1) Is it the truth?

2) Is it fair to all concerned?

3) Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Formanek spoke on the subject of “Today’s Media,” Richter on “Standardized Testing” and Mitchell on “Holiday Giving Trees.” Each student is awarded a monetary prize with first place being $500, second $300 and third $200.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
