American Legion's oratorical contest winners

The American Legion Fayette County Post 105 announces the results of their 2011 Oratorical “Constitutional Speech” Contest.  Open to high school students across Fayette County for scholarship money, each contestant delivers their own 8 to 10 minute prepared oration dealing with the US Constitution. 

Next, they present a 3 to 5 minute short speech on one of four possible topics dealing with selected amendments to our Constitution.
