Oration Endowment Contribution Form

Form Name: 
Oration Endowment Contribution Form
Form Description: 

 

 

The Rumbaugh Orations Contest’s National level awards are not currently competitive among nationwide contests. Currently, the program disperses $11,000 annually where competitive levels are closer to $30,000.
 
The Orations Committee is seeking to rectify this disparity with an enhanced endowment.
 
Joseph Warren, a Boston doctor, was the orator selected to commemorate the anniversary of the Boston Massacre. Because the orator would be heckled by unforgiving British officers and sympathizers, Warren bravely presented his speech with a steady and firm voice. Warren’s stirring oratory skill recruited more patriots and moved others to support the Revolution.
