An Oratorical Speech Contest

    The American Legion has numerous wonderful programs, "An Oratorical Speech Contest" is one program to promote citizenship and teach about the US Constitution. To compete in this program, a High School aged (and enrolled) student is expected to write and deliver an 8 to 10 minute speech on the United States Constitution and the responsibilities of citizenship. Just as these well spoken youth emphasize duties and responsibilities of the citizen, I realize there are duties and responsibilities expected of our American Legion Members.
