The contest will be held on Monday March 5th, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. at the Hotel Crittenden, located in Coudersport.

The contest is open to both public and home-schooled students in Grades 9 through 12.  The purpose of the contest is to teach students how to apply the “Principles of Ethics” through a short oral presentation showing how problems may be resolved and goals can be advanced through the principles of the 4-Way Test;

  • Is it the TRUTH?
  • Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  • Will it build GOODWILL and better friendships?
  • Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

According to Northeimer, up to four (4) students will be accepted into the Coudersport 4-Way Test competition.  “This is an easy and fun way to earn money while giving the students an experience which can enhance their educational portfolios and college applications,” added Northeimer.

The 1st place winner will receive $100.00 at the local level before competing on the regional and then District-level where the grand prize is a $1,000 cash award!

Parents and children wanting more information should contact Pat Northeimer by email at patnortheimer@yahoo.com.  Potential participants are asked to apply by January 30th, if possible.
