GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Woodlands High School junior Caturah Brown recently tied for first place in the Hartsdale Rotary Four Way Speaking Contest, held during a luncheon at Alaroma restaurant in Elmsford, according to a press release from the school district.
Brown will next compete in the regional division Speak Off at the end of March, the press release said.
"Caturah was awesome," said Miriam Bernabei, Greenburgh Central 7 Schools art director in the press release. "I think she has a very good chance to win at the end of the month."
Rotary Vice President Diana Juettner was impressed with all of the participants.
"Each girl took a unique approach applying Rotary's Four Way Test," Juettner said in the press release. "They were both well poised and articulate."
The Four Way Test is a rotary moral and ethical model for behavior, and the speeches must be delivered in an extemporaneous style, the press release said. The speeches are based on four questions: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
