April 5, 2009

BENNINGTON - Nine high school students from Mount Anthony participated in the Bennington and Catamount Rotary Clubs' 4-Way Speech Contest on March 11. Although the topics of the speeches varied from a talk challenging the assumptions of college applications to the value of Barbie as an image for women, all were based on the Rotary Four Way Test questions of whether it is true, fair to all concerned, able to build good will and better friendships and to benefit all concerned. The judges and the audience agreed that it was hard to select winners from such a fine array of speeches

Miles Selib won first place and $300. He talked about the value of his experience working in Somotillo, Nicaragua as an Interact student. Exchange student Selbi Arjanova won the $200 second prize for her speech about the value of being an exchange student. Jim Weber won $100 in third place for his account of his work with the Shaftsbury Fire Department.

The first and second place winners will go to the Rotary District 7870 semi-finals. Last year, first place winner Emily Adams went on to the District Finals where she won second place.
