The Blacks In Government (BIG) Mile High Chapter is sponsoring a national oratorical competition. This competition gives students an opportunity to showcase their oral and written communication skills and is open to students in grades 9 through 12.

The 2012 oratorical competition theme is, "Conquering 21st Century Financial Slavery by Elevating Your Financial IQ – Explore How to Manage Money Instead of Money Managing You”. The competition reflects an increasing need to assist our students with developing and enhancing their oral and written communication skills in order to be competitive in the global workplace.

Students will compete for scholarships and prizes awarded at the local and regional levels, and at BIG's 34rd Annual National Training Conference in Detroit, Michigan in August 2012.

All students participating in the competition must be in good standing with a GPA average of 2.0. Upon review and acceptance into the competition, students will be required to submit additional paperwork for verification.

BIG is a national organization of African-American government workers committed to excellence in government through equality of opportunity. For more information, visit us online at www.bigmilehighyouth.org. Additional questions and comments can be directed to Gerri Purvis
