Our annual High School Oratory Contest is this Saturday. It will be held in the Admiral Room at the Blasco Memorial Erie County Library, beginning at 11 a.m.
Late registrations are welcome, but please let us know before Saturday morning.
Speeches should be 5-7 minutes in length and pertain to a human life topic such as abortion, physician-prescribed suicide, or embryo-destructive scientific research. Upbeat topics such as adoption, fetal development, or a student's experiences with pro-life activities, pro-life advocacy, or providing help and support to a single mom or mom-to-be are part of the range of possibilities.
Any high school student is eligible to compete. There will be separate levels of competition for grades 9-10 and 11-12.
First-place winners will receive $100; second-place and third-place winners will receive $50 and $25 respectively.
Each participant will research, write, and present a 5-7 minute, pro-life speech about abortion, infanticide, physician-assisted suicide/euthanasia, embryo-destructive (embryonic stem cell) experimentation, or a related topic.
Preregistration is required: E-mail name, address, phone number, age, school, and grade to email@example.com or call (814) 882-1333.
