Quincy Rotary to host 2022 Speech Contest

Quincy Rotary is pleased to announce that its annual Speech Contest is slated for Monday, Feb. 28, at noon. The 2022 theme is “Share with us a time that you have served others and how were lives impacted, including your own.”

This is a wonderful opportunity for all 9-12 grade students to share their insights and public speaking abilities. The event will be held at Plumas County Fairground’s Mineral Building where students will address a panel of judges as well Quincy Rotary members. Please note, there will be a mask mandate at the event.

Prizes for the contest will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. The first-place winner will be able to compete for additional recognition at the regional and District 5190 competition with additional rewards for excellence.

Applications are available at both Quincy High School’s office and Plumas Charter School. Also, interested participants may obtain applications by contacting Beth Reid at [email protected] or Sarah Gallagher at [email protected].  Applications are due by Friday, Feb. 18. Completed applications may be submitted to either Reid or Gallagher electronically, mailed to Rotary Speech Contest, 1540 Chandler Rd., Quincy, CA 95971, or hand delivered to that same address.
