Judges Needed for High School Oratorical Contest

Monday, January 24, 2005  
Share |

The fourth annual high school oratorical contest takes place on Saturday, April 9th.  This year we are looking to our alumni to serve as judges for this event.  Judges are needed for the preliminary rounds only which will probably run from about 9:30-3 pm.


A judge listens to the student speeches and then decides who advances to the next round.  We estimate that we’ll need about 25 judges in total for the preliminary rounds this year. 


High schools students from the tri-state area will debate America’s international role while competing for nearly $20,000 in prize money in the Guarini Center for Governmental Affairs Fourth Annual Oratorical Contest.  Students will deliver speeches up to ten minutes on the following topic:  “What Role Should America Play on the Global Stage?”  The contest typically attracts more than 100 students from 75 high schools in New Jersey, New York and other states. The first place winner receives $10,000 in prize money followed by $5,000 and $2,500, in addition to prize awards for the next top three finishers. The event is free and open to all high school students. Members of the general public may also attend.


If anyone is interested in participating please contact Steve Hudik 201-915-4951 or email by February 21, 2005.
