The Public Speaking Contest, part of the Legion’s Youth and Education program, is meant to give young people an opportunity to speak in public. The individual chooses their own subject matter for the address.The contest progresses through zone, district and area levels, concluding at the Provincial level in May of each year. The Grafton Legion holds our Annual Public Speaking Contest on Sunday March 5, 2017. (Sorry – the Sunday Jam Session had to be canceled this month). You may recall that last year Ethan Rivard placed in the Grades 4-6 division and Sam Hall placed in the Grades 7-9 division. Good luck to our participants this year!
