Minnesota girls:

We want to hear you speaking proudly!

Saturday, October 26, 2019, 50 high school-age girls will participate in the inaugural Speaking Proudly oratory competition at the beautifully restored Minnesota State Capitol. We hope you will be one of them.

Sponsored by Metro Republican Women, Speaking Proudly offers participants a supportive opportunity to develop their research, writing and speaking skills and express their patriotism. Give the competition your serious consideration. You have a lot to gain from it!

Countdown to the Competition








Parents, teachers and others:
