DISTRICT SPEECH CONTEST

 

The theme for the 2021 District 5190 Speech contest is:

"Turning challenges into opportunities as we create transformative change"

As we all know, life is a journey with many challenges. Rotarians turn the challenges they encounter  into opportunities for transformative change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. What opportunities does Rotary open for young people to make transformative changes?

This contest is open to all students in grades 9-12, attending school and residing within the 5190 boundaries. Each Area will hold individual contests before April 15th. The District level contest will be held the morning of April 24, 2021, the week before the District Conference Virtual RALLYE Event!

Below are the materials for the speech contest. Please do not hesitate to contact Jeanne Schmidt Herron if you have any questions or need further clarification. We wish you the best success as we continue to promote the Youth in our District, Areas and Clubs.
