Guilford High School (GHS) senior Mariam Kish has won her third American Legion oratorical competition; she is now the frontrunner for the American Legion Department of Connecticut and will begin competing on Friday, April 5 in the American Legion National Oratorical Contest held in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Kish has won the Post 48 of Guilford, District 2 of Connecticut, and Department of Connecticut oratorical contests to reach this point. The winner of the national contest will receive a $18,000 scholarship; the second- and third-place winners receive a $16,000 and $14,000 award, respectively. All participants will receive $1,500 for just competing.
In the contest, each contestant gives two speeches on the U.S. Constitution. One is an 8- to 10-minute speech on any aspect of the U.S. Constitution, the other is a three- to five-minute speech on one of four pre-assigned topics of the first 10 amendments; contestants won’t know which topic until the contest.
