The Oratorical Contest was developed for High School students to inspire a better appreciation and knowledge of the Constitution of the United States. It develops leadership qualities and public speaking skills. It also prepares the students for duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of an American citizen.
One of the purposes of the Oratorical Contest is to assist students with the cost of an higher education. It is a contest of a national level. As the student progresses from local, regional, state and national levels, there is an opportunity to win over $20,000 in scholarships.
