Rotary club to host annual speech competition

The annual Rotary Speech Competition is open to all high school students who attend school in the cities of Westlake or Bay Village, or are home schooled in either city.

The theme of the 4- to 7-minute-long speech is to solve an ethical problem using the principles of the Rotary’s 4-Way Test, and should be from the speaker’s personal experience or knowledge.

The registration deadline is March 4 and the competition will take place on Tuesday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Westlake School District’s Parkside Building at 24525 Hilliard Blvd. The first-place winner will receive $150 and move on to the District Competition on April 2. The second- and third-place winners will receive $125 and $100, respectively.

For more information and to register for the contest, please contact Rotary Club of Westlake/Bay Village members Ray Glinka at or Marie Marrali at
