ORATORY CONTEST: Free All-Expense Paid Trip for Two to NRLC Convention, Cash Prizes!

On even-numbered years, Massachusetts Citizens for Life sponsors the Dr. Mildred F. Jefferson Oratory Contest for pro-life high school juniors and seniors.  This year the contest will be held simultaneously with the Mass. Citizens Convention at Assumption College on March 29, 2014 from 8:30am - 4:00pm.  Contestants will be guests of Mass. Citizens for the Convention and lunch.

The Massachusetts winner goes with a chaperone to the National Right to Life Committee Convention and represents Massachusetts in the Jane B. Thompson Oratory Contest in Louisville, KY, June 26 -28.  The first and second Jefferson runners-up will receive cash prizes. 

Contestants are to research, write, and present an original pro-life speech on abortion, infanticide, euthanasia or stem cell research.  The speech should address one of these topics directly.  The speech is to be 5 – 7 minutes in length.  A contestant will be disqualified if the speech is timed to be under 4 minutes or over 8 minutes in length. 

We have had students finish very well nationally in the Oratory Contest and are especially proud of our Margaret O'Brien who won the NRLC Essay Contest in 2012.  We have so many wonderful young people in the state.  We encourage each and every one of you to participate.  If you have any questions, please check here or call John at 617-242-4199.

This is an excellent opportunity for any pro-life youngster.  Please spread the word.
