Sandy Creek Students Take Top Honors at American Legion Oratorical Contest

The American Legion Oratorical Contest exists to develop deeper knowledge and appreciation for the U.S. Constitution among high school students. Since 1938, the program has presented participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation’s laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship. The program has featured numerous politicians and prominent contestants over the years, including former presidential candidate Alan Keyes, national television commentator and talk radio host Lou Dobbs, and Vice-President of the United States Mike Pence.

Congratulations to Zuzu Vidourak for her second place finish in the American Legion Post 50 Constitution Oratorical contest held at Sandy Creek on Sunday, January 12, 2020. Additionally, Sandy Creek's Caleb Adams finished third, and both students took home cash prizes, certificates, and medals for their speeches on one part of the U.S. Constitution. Great job, Zuzu and Caleb!
