Peter had won the local contest sponsored by the Rotary Club of Concord on March 27th where a total of 16 students from Concord's high schools competed. From there, he advanced and won at the District semifinals in Henniker on April 1st, and then went on to take home the top Rotary prize at the Northeast Rotary contest.  

About the Four-Way Test

Students must answer the four questions set forth by Rotary: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? The Rotary Club of Concord has been offering the contest every year to high school students in the community since 2003.
