The Feb 11, 2017 Oratorical Scholarship Program (A Constitutional Speech Contest) was held in Hampstead, NC – Pender County Annex. We got up early to make it for the contest scheduled at 11am.
There was 3 candidates who presented their gift of oration to the body present. American Legion Posts 181, Post 202, and Post 543 had a candidate represent.
I would like to congratulate each of our young students who each were prepared and their preparation was evident. Their knowledge of their chosen subject and the constitution was impressive. The experience I’m sure will be a memorable one for each of the contestants.
Our American Legion Post 202’s candidate (Samantha Da Cruz) of Cumberland Polytechnic High School came out victorious by placing 1st at the Division II Contest and will move on to the State competition to be held in Kings Mountain, NC.
CONGRATULATIONS SAMANTHA Da CRUZ from your support network at American Legion Post 202.
