2018 Student Contest Info

The rules for states have changed!
A student does NOT have to place 1st or 2nd to participate in the State Oratory Contest. ALL students may enter the state competition by submitting a video of their talk.

SO, the Regional Oratory Contest is completely separate from the State Oratory Contest. But the winner of states does go on to the national oratory contest.

There WILL BE a Regional Oratory Contest
But NO Regional Essay Contest.

There will be a PA State Essay Contest
and State Video Oratory Contest.

Click on 2018 Essay & Oratory Contest Flyer to get the details for the regional, state, and national contests.

Congratulations go to Teresa Sicree from Centre County for winning 1st place at the state Oratory Contest in 2014. Teresa's 1st place prize was an all expenses paid trip to the National Right to Life Convention in Louisville KY where she represented PA at the National Oratory Contest.

Teresa is the first and only Oratory Contest winner from our region to win 1st place in the PA Pro-Life Federation State Oratory Contest!
I talked to Teresa on the phone a few days after the national competition. She was so thankful that she was able to go to the National Convention and compete in the National Oratory Contest. She was able to meet a number of national and inter-national pro-life leaders. It sounded like it was quite an experience for her.

Congratulations Teresa!!! And thank you for all your essays and speeches over the years. Read her speech:
In Denial by Teresa Sicree - 1st Place/2014 States Competition

in the 2011 National Right to Life
Pro-Life Junior High Essay Contest!

The title of her essay is My Generationís Black Death.
