Cash Prizes for Public Speakers

If you are an excellent public speaker and could use some extra cash, the Hal R. Ramer Memorial Oratorical Contest is for you.

The first place winner will receive $100 cash, second place, $75, and third place, $50.

“We do it every year. It has been a tradition that has been going on at least 20 years. It is a student public speaking contest for all enrolled students,” said Leonard Assante, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication. Assante will be moderating the contest.

Students wishing to participate must be currently enrolled at Vol State, and must submit their topic of interest and outline by March 29.

“It is supposed to be a persuasive speech. We have celebrity judges that come in to judge the students,” said Assante.

The contest will be in the auditorium of Caudill Hall Monday April 5, from 12:15 pm. to 1:45 p.m.

For a copy of complete contest rules or additional information contact Dr. Judi Truitt, at 230-3781, or 230-3202.
