Original Oratory 

Please note: 4n6u is in transition. We are working on getting content up as quickly as we can, but we have very grand plans, and we are a volunteer program. Please be patient with us as we start to get things up as efficiently as possible. 

Original Oratory is an event in which Students prepare original orations, usually persuasive or informative on a current topic. Any topic is permissible and any form of oration is permitted. The presentation must be memorized, with a maximum length of ten minutes.

Oratory is that event which most 'non-speechies' think of when they think of the word 'speech.' That is to say, this is the event in which students write and present a speech of original content and research.
