The Oratorical Contest is an annual event held at the historic Avalon Theater. Students under the age of 19 and who have not yet graduated from high school present a speech on a given topic. This year's topic was "Why My Voice is Important". Winners from our local contest compete in a "Zone" or regional contest in Salisbury against students from other Clubs on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Winners from that competition compete in Ocean City against students from other winners around the State.
