People for Life's annual Oratory Contest for high school students will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Blasco Memorial Library in Erie, PA. All high school students are welcome and encouraged to compete.
There will be separate levels for grades 9-10 and 11-12. First-place winners will receive $100; second-place winners will receive $50, and third-place winners will receive $25.
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.
