The Rotary District 5190 Annual Youth Instrumental Music Contest provides a chance for participants to win $1,000 for a 3-8 minute performance if they reach and win the district contest. Participants begin at the club-level and winners advance to area contests before the district participants are chosen.
Sparks Rotary will hold its club-level music contest on April 20, 2016. The final contest will be held at the District 5190 Conference in May. Information regarding the music contest is available through the District website at www.rotarydistrict5190.org.
The contest is open to area high school students (including home schooled students) 14 to 18 years old. Area and District participants must be sponsored by a District 5190 Rotary Club. Participants are judged based on musical ability, musical sound, stage presence, musical selection and musical empathy.
Youth Service has long held a high priority in Rotary, and by organizing club, area, and district music contests, we serve our young musical talent in this district! We provide the financial motivation of prize money and venues for musical competition.
“What it means to Be a Gift to the World, personally, and in my own words" is the theme for the 2016 District 5190 Speech Contest.
Sparks Rotary will host the Area 8 contest for participating students on April 13, 2016. The winner has the opportunity to advance to the District level contest on May 14 . All speech documents and information are available through the District website at www.rotarydistrict5190.org.
The speech contest provides an exceptional opportunity for the young people in our community. Each year talented students demonstrate their speaking skills in front of Rotarians, guests and families …it is amazing to watch! Again, this year we will be providing students an opportunity to display their talent.
Each speaker will be introduced by number only with no mention of names or school affiliation until all contestants have given their speeches. Please hold your applause between speakers so that judges are not influenced by the audience, and that there will be silence between speakers to allow the judges an opportunity to rate the speakers.
High ethical standards in business and professions
The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society
