Rotary Clubs of District 5170 sponsor the Richard D. King Annual Youth Speech Contest with three goals in mind for the Club Members and each Speech Contest Participant:
  • To increase the personal knowledge and awareness of the importance of being able to speak effectively before a group.
  • To increase public knowledge of what Rotary is and does throughout the world, especially among young people.  Through this knowledge, we hope that they will learn, as we have in the past,          “He who serves best profits most.”
  • To increase participation in the contest and to provide all high school contestants an opportunity to win prizes as top speaker, or runners-up, in District 5170.
