Ortiz Wins Rotary Essay Contest
(Deming) – An essay written by a Red Mountain Middle School 8th grader has won a local competition and advanced to the next level of competition.
Sarah Ortiz’s essay on Rotary International’s Four-Way Test won first place in the 8th grade competition sponsored by the Deming Rotary Club.
Rotary’s Four-Way Test encourages members to ask themselves four things of the things they think, say and do: Is it the TRUTH?... Is it FAIR to all concerned?... Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?... and Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
This year’s essay contest asked students how using the Four-Way Test could make them better leaders in their school and community.
Other top eighth grade competitors were: Shannah Rudiger, who placed second… Austin Brookhouser, who placed third, and Jessica Medicus and Sammi Homsi, who received honorable mentions.
Seventh graders also could participate for recognition, but were ineligible to advance in the competition.
In the seventh grade contest, first place went to Arlan Dawdy and second place to Kellina Madrid.
