Dallas, Houston Annual MLK Jr. Oratory Final Competition to Take Place Jan. 17

11 a.m.-1 p.m., Dallas
10 a.m.-noon, Houston

Gardere is continuing its tradition of extolling the work and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with the 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. Oratory Competitions in Dallas and Houston on Friday, Jan. 17.

Fourth- and fifth- grade elementary students will participate and contemplate the theme, "If Dr. King were speaking at a March on Washington today, what would he say?" This unique event encourages the development of research, writing and oratory skills of hundreds of Dallas and Houston elementary school children.

"Our Firm is proud to continue its sponsorship of this competition featuring outstanding fourth and fifth grade students," says Dwight Francis, co-chair of Gardere's Diversity Committee. "The contest encourages scholarship while reinforcing the need for unity and the vital human traits of compassion and justice — traits that are crucial throughout the community."

The 22nd annual Dallas competition, co-presented by Dallas ISD, will be held at The Majestic Theatre. The 18th annual Houston competition, co-presented by Houston ISD, will take place at the historic downtown Antioch Missionary Baptist Church.

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.


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.
