2016 Oratorical Contest Contestants Shine in Tampa

January 23, 2017

The theme of the 2016 Oratorical Contest,  "Jesus Christ Keeps Using My Life to Inspire My Generation to Follow Him" (Luke 9:23) inspired 14 young people to conceptualize, write and deliver speeches at the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education Annual Session held in Tampa, Florida in June. Coordinated by Sis. Roslyn L. Harvey and a stellar team of coordinators and judges, the contest provides a platform for young people to hone their oration skills and earn scholarship money and equipment/supplies needed for college.

The 2016 winners are:

Miss Billie Mwangi (NJ) - First Place | Miss Madison Elam - Second Place | Miss Nile Pierre - Third Place
