As part of the selection process, each student must submit an essay of approximately 200 words on the topic of the Rotary Four-Way Test. The test, which members of the West Wichita rotary Club recite at each meeting, includes four questions:

  1. 1. Is it the truth?
  2. 2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. 3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

In addition to the essay, students must meet the following qualifications which include: attending a Kansas college or university; exhibiting involvement in school, church, and community activities; achieving a grade point average of 3.0 or better, and obtaining a letter of recommendation from a teacher or administrator about the student's work and study habits.
