Feb. 28: 77th Annual American Legion Oratorical

At the Peoria Civic Center (201 Southwest Jefferson Avenue, Peoria, IL 61602-1448)

Media Advisory

BLOOMINGTON, Ill./EWORLDWIRE/Feb. 19, 2014 --- Since the first contest in 1938, the American Legion High School Oratorical competition has swelled to host over 30,000 entrants across the United States each year.

Students who participate become engaged in various aspects of the Constitution of the United States - the supreme law of the land, and demonstrate their knowledge of the selections made by the National Americanism Commission. Four aspects are chosen for the oratorical, designed to emphasize the duties and obligations of citizens to the American government. This year's topics encompass speeches on Amendments 1, 4, 13 and 21.

Each of the five American Legion Department of Illinois (http://www.illegion.org) Divisions will have representative high school students compete at the statewide Department of Illinois Oratorical Contest held on Saturday, March 1.

The event begins Friday evening, with a contest briefing presented by Department Commander Bernie Stegmueller, followed by a tour of the contest areas and a pizza party.

Saturday morning, semi-finalists report to a waiting area room and learn of their individual speaking order, which has been drawn at random. Each candidate will present to a group of five judges, who judge the presentations independent of each other. After further narrowing over the course of the day, the highest scored finalists will be presented with awards. Students who take top honors will receive scholarships and become eligible to compete at the national level in April.

The objectives of the oratorical are to encourage students to develop a stronger knowledge and appreciation of the U.S. Constitution, the rights and privileges of American citizenship, and expand their speaking and presentation skills, and leadership qualities.

"With all of the activities we have during the course of a year, the American Legion Oratorical competition offers a unique opportunity to consider what the Founding Fathers framed to guide our great nation," stated Stegmueller. "The quality of the presentations is always astounding. We are proud to be able to provide this forum, as we have for so many years - for students and see our legacy take root in their future."

Scholarships totaling $13,075 will be awarded by the Department of Illinois.
