Eagle Nest students shine in Rotary ‘Four Way Test’ essay contest

Angel Fire Rotary members moved their weekly meeting to Eagle Nest School Wednesday (April 11) in order to recognise three eighth-grade winners of the club’s “Four Way Test” essay contest:

  • Lily Foley, 1st place with a prize of $100;
  • Peyton Podell, 2nd place and $75; and 
  • Jacob Waggoner, 3rd place and $50.

The students also read their essays for classmates during their lunch break. The essays described how Rotary’s Four Way Test would benefit them in current and future lives.

The Rotary Four Way Test is as follows: “Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”

Foley’s winning essay was forwarded to Rotary District 5520 where it also won first place for another $400.

Angel Fire Rotary Club essay contest coordinator Janice Brooks informs local winner Lily Foley she has won the district’s first place prize as well during a special lunch meeting at eagle Nest School Wednesday (April 11).
