The American Legion’s Americanism Division, would like to extend an invitation to you to serve as a volunteer at the American Legion National High School Oratorical Contest Finals. Please be assured that while volunteer time is a commodity greatly appreciated and highly valued by our organization, we want to ensure your awareness that The American Legion National Headquarters will not provide any financial compensation for your time or travel expenses associated with your volunteer support of the 2020 American Legion National High School Oratorical Contest.
This special event showcases 53 our country’s best and brightest youth as they present their thoughts on one of our country’s most important documents in our nation’s history, the Constitution of the United States of America!
The contest will take place at the Wyndham Indianapolis West hotel. Contests quarter-finals and semi-finals will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2020, with the finals to be held on Sunday, April 19, 2020.
The support of many volunteers are needed to conduct this wonderful event, which in 2019 provided more than $138,000 in college scholarships to contest quarter-finalist, semi-finalist and finalist.
Contest registration opens on November 1, 2019.
