2017 Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competition
Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP is proud to continue its tradition of extolling the work and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with the Annual Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competition held in Dallas and Houston.
This year's final competition was held on Friday, Jan. 13, 2017 and marked the 25th anniversary in Dallas and 21st in Houston. This year, students delivered original three-to-five minute speeches answering the question, "If Dr. King were alive today, what would he say about Muhammad Ali’s contribution to society?" Fifth-grader Sierra Jones from Charles Rice Learning Center took home first place in Dallas, and Nhedrick Jabier, a fourth-grade student from Crespo Elementary, was the winner in Houston.
Established in 1993 in Dallas and expanded four years later to Houston, this unique event encourages the development of research, writing and oratory skills of hundreds of Dallas and Houston elementary school children. The students' speeches not only address how Dr. King impacts today's world but also illustrate how his words continue to affect their lives and inspire their perspectives.
We invite you to use #GardereMLK when posting about the event on your favorite social media sites.

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
Searches are not case sensitive.
