This is a reminder to Posts to be thinking about the Oratorical Contest.  Local contests should be held sufficiently prior to the District and Department contests (February 11th and 25th) for the local winners to prepare.

Posts should be planning for local contests at this time.  Some Posts have a different selection process.  It really helps if you can find someone at your local high school who will get behind the program.  If we have inquiries from high schools this year, we will try to refer them to Posts with contests.

If your Post has not been participating, check it out on the National website and consider having a Post contest.  Call District Chair Diane Jankowski and she will walk you through the process.  You will find it fun and rewarding.  A total of $2,500 is awarded to three winners at our District Contest.  The Department awards $3,700 in scholarships to four winners and the National awards $67,000 to four winners plus $2,000 to each Department winner participant.

For Further information, or help organizing your Post program contact Diane Jankowski at 612-227-6506.  Or email me at
