Dallas ISD Students Compete in Annual Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Semi-Finals


North Dallas Gazette covered Gardere's 22nd Annual MLK Jr. Oratory Semi-Final Competition that was held Dec. 10, 2013. Fourth- and fifth-grade students representing 19 schools delivered original speeches answering the question: "If Dr. King were speaking at a March on Washington today, what would he say?"

Eight finalists will advance to the final competition on Jan. 17, 2014 at The Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas. The competition is designed to highlight the cultural diversity of the community while recognizing and encouraging the writing and speaking skills of elementary school students. Students are judged on their delivery, stage presence and decorum, content interpretation and memorization at all three levels of the competition.

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.
