Be a voice for the voiceless this March!

Enter the 34th annual High School Oratory Contest sponsored by Grand Rapids Right to Life. This is a great way for high school students to practice their public speaking and leadership skills.

Each contestant must research, write, and present a 5-7 minute speech on a prolife topic. The top three finalists will earn cash prizes. The first place winner will also compete at the State High School Oratory Contest in May in Charlotte.
