The American Legion Oratorical Contest exists to develop deeper knowledge and ap- preciation for the U.S. Constitution among high school students. Since 1938, the program has presented participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important lead- ership qualities, the history of our nation's laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibili- ties, rights and privileges of American citi- zenship. Over $138,000 in scholarships can be awarded each year. The overall national con- test winner gets an $18,000 scholarship. Second place takes home $16,000, and third gets $14,000. Each department (state) winner who is certified into and participates in the na- tional contest's first round receives a $1,500 scholarship. Those who advance past the first round receive an additional $1,500 scholar- ship. The American Legion's National Or- ganization awards the scholarships, which can be used at any college or university in the Unit- ed States.
