Logan LaRose advances in Rotary Speech contest


LYNDONVILLE ROTARY CLUB'S SPEECH CONTEST WINNER -- Lyndon Institute student Logan LaRose advanced to the next round of the Rotary District Speech Contest, during a competition held recently at Lyndonville Rotary Club's weekly meeting. Logan's speech focused on the Rotary's "Four Way Test." Fellow competitors were LI students Christina Cassidy and Chelsea Corrow. Each year Rotary District 7850 (Lyndonville Rotary Club one of the 42 clubs in this District) sponsors a Speech Contest. The contest starts at the club level and encourages local high school students to prepare and present a five-minute speech on a limited set of Rotary topics selected each year, such as "The Four Way Test," "Service Above Self" and the current year's Rotary International theme, "Light Up Rotary." Progressive competitions are held at the assistant governor's area and District levels to determine the final participants to compete in the spring at the finals. Winners at each level receive financial awards. Logan has the opportunity to advance to the next round, with a chance to win the $1,000 District grand prize, which will be awarded to the one of the finalists at the District 7850 Conference in Stowe in May.
