Winners of the Rotary Club of Murrieta's Four-Way Test Speech are, from left: Lianna Solano, Murrieta Mesa High School; Ingrid Adams, Great Oak High School; Anne Werner, Vista Murrieta High School; Madysen Moreno, Murrieta Valley High School; and Hunter Slezak, Murrieta Valley High School.

Great Oak High School senior and Murrieta resident Ingrid Adams took the top prize for the second consecutive year in the Rotary Club of Murrieta’s Four-Way Test Speech contest on March 16 at the Murrieta Valley Unified School District headquarters.

The 18-year-old Adams won $300 and the opportunity to compete in the Rotary District 5330 competition next month.

The second-place finisher was Madysen Moreno, a 14-year-old freshman at Murrieta Valley High School, while third place went to Hunter J. Slezak, an 18-year-old senior at Murrieta Valley.

The Rotary Four-Way Test, which was created in the early 1930s, has been used by businesses, industry, government groups, civic organizations, schools and colleges. An ethical tenet in today’s culture, it states: Of the things that we think, say or do, is it the truth? Is it fair to all
concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Contestants addressed topics of current interest and importance, and included and used concepts from the Four-Way Test as methods of discussion or analysis in the body of the speech.

Adams spoke on the importance of hobbies and applied the Four-Way Test to her arguments. She will now advance to a District Elimination Round, to be held April 29 in Riverside, from which five finalists will win $300 each and move to the District competition in Riverside in May.
