Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical Contest

Do you have a lot to say about your community? Do you want to use your voice to inspire others? Do you love performing?

The MLK Oratorical Contest is your chance to let your voice be heard!

Participants will create a short original speech around the theme “I am a Revolutionary.” Not only will you get the chance to win prizes for your speech, but you will meet new people and get a chance to explore Indianapolis’ Butler University.

The contest is open to students at George Washington, Crispus Attucks, Arsenal Tech and Shortridge.

The event will kick off on Martin Luther King Jr. Day from 12-6:00 p.m. at Butler University. There will be school based contests, prizes for winners and coaching sessions for participants. The final contest will be held April 6, 2023, at Butler University.
