The Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline and the Rotary Club of Incline Village recently jointly hosted the annual club-level Rotary speech contest recently.

Incline teens Ryan Eppolito, Mitch Cornell, Alexandra Resney and Chloe Whatmore each presented a speech on his or her personal interpretation of the Rotary International motto “Service Above Self.”

Whatmore took first place and received a $100 cash prize. Eppolito was second and received a $75 cash prize. Resney was third, and received a $50 cash prize. Whatmore and Eppolito advance to the area speech contest on April 22.

The contest is hosted each year by rotary clubs across the world. It is open to 10th-, 11th- and 12th-graders. Winners of the area speech contest will advance to the district contest in Reno in May.
