High school students from the Frisco area will compete for college scholarships in the American Legion Post 178 Oratorical Scholarship Contest.  The competition will take place in the Council Chambers at Frisco’s George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd, on Saturday, December 12.

Orators are required to write and memorize an original speech on some aspect of the Constitution, with emphasis on a citizen’s duties and obligations to our government.  There is an additional element of the contest that requires a student to deliver extemporaneous remarks over one of four amendments to the U.S. Constitution.  The specific amendment will be drawn on the day of the competition.

Four winners will be selected to proceed to the district contest in Royse City on January 2, 2021.  They will compete with winners from the other posts in the 4th District.  The contest is open to the public and will begin at 9 a.m.  Admission is free.
