American Legion Post 279 in Woodbury hosted the annual Oratorical Contest for students who speak on the United States Constitution, and compete for scholarships as much as $18,000.00 at the National Level.
The winner of the 2013 American Legion Post 279 Oratorical Contest is Ryan Gunter, a sophomore at Cannon County High School. Ryan will go to District competition on February 9, 2013.
If he wins there, he will come back to Woodbury for the Division Competition on February 23rd, which will include the four district winners in Middle Tennessee. If Ryan wins there he will go to Tennessee State Level Competition. From there he will go to National Level competition in Indianapolis.
Let's all get behind Ryan and show him that we support him, that we are praying for him, and that he brings home the National Level Championship Award to Woodbury and Cannon County.
