Rotary's Four-Way Test Speeches

Kevin McGrath Jr., a freshman from St Ignatius High School, gave his speech called 'A Place for Religion?' at the Rotary Club of Cleveland. This was the third place presentation in a contest that focused on the Rotary's Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do. Kevin asked why society has become so hostile toward religion, especially in schools.



The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. The 24 word 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?
