Simultaneously providing students from across the Vegas Valley with the opportunity to practice, hone, showcase and celebrate their formal oratorical and art skills by competing in recitation and performance oratory in the following categories: Dramatic/Humorous interpretation, Poetry, Prose and Spoken Word and/or Original Oratory.
