Annual Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competitions to be Held Jan. 17


Androvett NewsWire covered the Dallas and Houston Annual MLK Jr. Oratory Competitions set to take place on Friday, Jan. 17. Fourth- and fifth-grade students will execute memorized essays that reflect the theme, "If Dr. King were speaking at a March on Washington today, what would he say?"

"There are many ways to pay tribute to Dr. King's life, but Gardere's oratory competition is unique in that it is designed to celebrate and explore his legacy," said Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "While the competition is centered on educational principles, having Dr. King's teachings examined through the fresh eyes of our fourth- and fifth-grade participants gives his words new relevancy."

The Dallas competition, co-presented by Dallas ISD, will take place at The Majestic Theatre, and the Houston competition, co-presented by Houston ISD, will be held 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.
