Oratorical Contest Department Contests

Minnesota

Dates of District Contests (updated 11-15-2017)

Arrangements for contests leading to the Department Finals shall be the responsibility of each Department (State) organization of The American Legion. For those levels of competition prior to the Department Finals, the rules and regulations to follow are not mandatory; they are offered as a guideline. However, all Department Finals Contests shall conform with National Contest procedures, rules and regulations.

A winner certified to the National Americanism and Children & Youth Division of The American Legion by a Department which did not conduct its final competition in conformity with the rules and regulations as set forth therein may, in the judgment of the Director, Americanism and Children & Youth Division, or his representative, be disqualified from competition in the National Contest.

Each Department may certify one (1) contestant into the National Contest. If for any reason the Department Winner is unable to compete in the National Contest, the Department First runner-up may be substituted following approval by The American Legion's National Americanism Commission. A Department First runner-up accepted into National Competition will be entitled to all National awards, entitlements and compensation that the Department Winner would have received had he/she participated at that level.

For information about the Oratorical Contests in your state, contact your local American Legion Post or your State Headquarters.
