The purpose of The American Legion’s National High School Oratorical Contest is to develop a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the Constitution of the United States on the part of high school students. Other objectives of the contest include the development of leadership qualities, the ability to think and speak clearly and intelligently, and the preparation for acceptance of the duties and responsibilities, the rights and privileges of American citizenship.
We started the new year with our Oratorical Contest headed by Bill LaRouchelle. Congratulations to Ava Grant of Springhill High School for winning the contest! Saina Srivastava, also of Springhill HS, gave a great presentation. Ava has been awarded a $200 college grant from Post 193 and moves on to the District competition on 11 February 2023.
