Serratore winner of the essay contest

BEMIDJI -- Megan Serratore is the local winner of the Bemidji Rotary Four Way Test essay contest. Serratore's award winning essay has been sent on to the Rotary District 5580 competition representing Bemidji.

Serratore's essay reviewed today's world media using the Rotary Four Way test. She asserted media is everywhere and it is difficult to escape its influence. The essay suggests we need to evaluate the media messages we receive each day with the Rotary 4 Way Test: is it the truth?, is it fair to all concerned?, will it build goodwill and better friendships and will it be beneficial to all concerned?
