01.23.15

The State Bar of Texas Blog featured the Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competition. Now in its 23rd year in Dallas and 19th in Houston, this year's event featured fourth- and fifth-grade students presenting three to five minute speeches answering the question: "If Dr. King were to win the Nobel Peace Prize today, what would he say in his acceptance speech?"

"The inspiring speeches prepared by these young orators are a testament to their commanding presentation skills and offer compelling insights to their thoughts on Dr. King's words," said Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "By applying his teachings to today, the students bring new life to Dr. King's legacy."

Etana King, a fifth-grade student from John Neely Bryan Elementary, won the competition in Dallas, and Chase Roberts, a fifth grader from Cornelius Elementary was the winner in Houston.

Search Tips:

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.

Operators

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.
