Oratorical Competition

Oratorical Competition -

Each Children’s Cluster attendee in the 10 – 12 year old age group is encouraged to participate in the Oratorical Competition. While participation is optional, this would be a great opportunity for our young people to practice public speaking skills and to prepare for Teen Conference.

Competition participants will compete with attendees who are the same age and will speak on the topic - "Believe It! Be It!".  This topic is not limited to a certain subject. Speakers should limit their presentations to 3 minutes maximum. Awards will be presented to the winners by age for the best oratorical presentation.

Registered preschoolers that are not “potty trained” must be accompanied by a parent at all times.

Teen Volunteers:  The East Children's Cluster will need a total of 11 Teen Volunteers.  After that total is reached, registration for Teen Volunteers will be closed. Teen Volunteers should wear their favorite Jack and Jill top to the event. ​Teens will receive community service hours for helping with the event.
