On Saturday February 19, 2011. The Central Area hosted their Oratorical area contest. Post 7 from District 15 hosted the contest. We had 2 contestants. Connor Stonesifer from Post 147, District 15 and Leah Hagen from Post 3, District 7.
Both spoke well on the Constitution and their assigned topic. After all was said and the judges had scored both contestants, the winner was Connor Stonesifer and runner up was Leah Hagen. Connor will go on to represent Central Area at the department contest.
