The American Legion Oratorical Contest exists to develop deeper knowledge and appreciation for the
U.S. Constitution among high school students. Since 1938, the program has presented participants
with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation’s laws,
the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship
Young orators earn some of the most generous college scholarships available to high school students. Over $203,500 in scholarships can be awarded each year.
High school students under age 20 are eligible. Competition begins at the post level.
Speaking subjects must be on some aspect of the U.S. Constitution, with some emphasis on the duties and obligations of citizens to our government.
