On Tuesday January 23 2018, The Groveland Rotary Club held their annual Speech Contest for Students of the Tioga High School. This year we had 3 contestants, Summer Avery, Grace Martinez and Aileen Martinez.
This year’s theme was “MAKING A DIFFERENCE” as it is the Slogan of this year’s Rotary International President.
The contest was judged by the following criteria: Meaningful inclusion of Rotary in the speech, Quality of thought, Organization of thought, Vocal delivery, Physical delivery, Overall effectiveness and Length of speech.
The judges Jim Goodrich, Don Felts and Herman Schaap had a difficult time to select the winner and follow ups. Their scores were very close.
The results are,
First Place, Summer Avery
Second Place, Grace Lloyd
Third place, Aileen Martinez
The Groveland Rotary thanks all of our contestants for their time and effort.
A job well done!
