Every year our club participates in the Rotary District Speech Contest for high school students.  The purpose of the contest is to help youth, community and Rotarians to understand, encourage and foster the principles and values of Rotary.
The first round, at the club level, was held January 24.  Two students from Middlebury Union High School, Maggie Morter and Cora Bliven, participated with the assistance of MUHS faculty member Tara Martin.  Maggie was chosen to advance to the next round.
The finals will be held at District 7850's annual conference Saturday, April 20, 2024 at Lake Morey Inn, Fairlee, VT.  The winner will receive $1,750 and the runner up will receive $1,500.
Our congratulations to both students.
