 deplorables-rirtl_logoBy Destiny Smith


If you told me when I was in 9th grade that when I entered Rhode Island Right to Life’s oratory contest that I would

one day become their education director, I would have never believed you. However, I now stand before you as just

that, Rhode Island Right to Life’s Education Director asking that you consider entering the oratory contest. Why?


RIRTL - Preflight Checklist2Well, because this opportunity might change the trajectory of the rest of your life, because you have nothing to lose

except the chance to begin an adventure in which your bravery and courage leads others to follow your example.

Someone once sent me the same challenge, so now I commission the same to you, do you accept? Will you enter

the oratory contest?


Years ago, my colleague, Safie Lamin accepted this challenge and went on to win our local oratory competition,

where she was then chosen to compete nationally where she won the entire competition and received a $1,000

scholarship prize. This could become your reality!


The prizes for the Rhode Island Contest are as follows: 1st place – Trip to National Contest in Kansas* plus $500,

2nd place – $250 , 3rd place – $125, 4th place – $100, 5th place – $75. The prizes for the National Contest are as follows: 1st place – $1,000 scholarship , 2nd place – $750 scholarship , 3rd place – $500 scholarship, and 4th place – $250 scholarship.


The Oratory Contest will take place on April 27 at 4:30-7pm, held at Rhode Island Right to Life Headquarters, 266 Smith St. Providence. RI. For More Information contact Destiny Smith (Rhode Island Right to Life Education Director) at (401)-663-5372.
