School, Rotary Club sponsor poster contest for students

January 26, 1998

Annapolis Elementary School and Annapolis Rotary Club are sponsoring a poster contest to help elementary students explore the issue of "Is It Fair?" The Rotary Four Way Test will be the theme of the contest.

The elements of the Four Way Test will be covered: Is it truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and friendship? Will it benefit all concerned?

At a kick-off assembly at 1: 15 p.m. Friday, students will learn about the Four Way Test through a series of skits presented by Rotary members and Annapolis Elementary school teachers and staff.

Each skit will address one element of the test in a setting the students can relate to. Then students in second through fifth grade will be challenged to put what they've learned into creating a poster. Children in kindergarten and first grade will be challenged to color posters already designed.

The Rotary Club will judge the posters and select winners from each grade. Winners will be announced at an awards assembly at 2 p.m. March 20.

Winners will receive a certificate from the Rotary Club and will designate a charity to receive a donation from the Annapolis club in their name.

A program called Respectful Alligators will be presented in conjunction with the poster contest. Students are encouraged in this program to help each other throughout the school day. They are also asked to recognize their fellow students when they observe an act of kindness.

Students so recognized will be awarded a T-shirt that says, "I Got Caught Doing Good at Annapolis Elementary School."

The back of the T-shirt has the Rotary Four Way Test depicted in cogs of interlocking gears. Students will also have their photos displayed.
