Four Alice High School students participated in the Alice Rotary 4-way speech on Wednesday.
The first place winner of the speech was senior Megan Leann Rios.
Rios won a $500 scholarship for her speech on life challenges and how the Rotary speech contest applies to those challenges. Rios plans to attend Coastal Bend College of Alice after graduation to earn her business degree. She hopes to transfer to Del Mar College in Corpus Christi where she can earn her culinary degree and start her own bakery.
The speech is centered around four questions and must be answered in each participants speech. 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?
Second place went to Juan Montez with a $300 scholarship. Third place was Justin Pastrano and he received a $200 scholarship. Fourth place was Delray Chavez and he received a $100 scholarship.
Rios will participate in an area contest.
