One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages. 

Every year, the Camarillo Rotary Club offers a Four-Way Test Essay Contest for local students, asking the question "How can the Rotary Four-Way Test assist you and/or others to make the world a more peaceful place when confronting or dealing with the area of conflict?"
