Orca students will compete in the 2nd Annual We.APP (Act Present Perform) Rising Voices Oratory Competition hosted by South Shore PK-8 on May 6, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Doors open at 10:00am. We.APP Young Artist Academy (YAA) scholars attending six schools across three school districts will compete in a citywide public speaking showcase, to spark a brave new movement of voices dedicated to truth and liberation.
In front of a panel of judges and community members, contestants ages 12 to 18 will present powerful personal narratives that capture their deepest feelings and aspirations. Each original speech is written and spoken in unapologetic vernacular, drawing upon personal perspectives on life and what it takes to progress as a community and nation.
This is a free community event! Students, parents, educators, mentors, and family and friends are encouraged to attend! Tickets are available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2893783.
