Praxis Article on 2012 Oratorical

Please take a moment to read an article from a recent edition of Praxis magazine, including interviews with the participants of the 2012 National Oratorical Festival in Bethesda, MD and the complete texts of the winning speeches.

You'll find some interesting comments on the hardest part of participating in the festival, as well as some useful advice for perfecting your speech.

You'll see Alexa Pappas in there -- she came to Austin last March to compete in the Metropolis of Denver Oratorical Festival, and she won, going on to represent our Metropolis in the National Festival, which she also won.  If any of you had the opportunity to meet her or to hear her speech, you know how well-deserved her honors are.

The 2012 National First Place Speaker came from our own Metropolis of Denver -- and this year, it could be you.
