Oratorical Contest

What is the Oratorical Contest?

The Oratorical Contest provides young people with an opportunity to develop and receive recognition for their public speaking skills.  Contestants are judged based on a set of criteria that measure their demonstration of intellectual thinking and positive expression in an original written and oral presentation of the annual theme.  College scholarships are awarded to the contestants with the highest scores.  The Oratorical Contest is held annually during the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education Annual Session.
