Pro-Life High School Oratory Contest

“If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”  These words were said by Abraham Lincoln to highlight the self-evident evil of slavery.  We too recognize that a threat to human life anywhere is a threat to human life everywhere.

This contest gives students the opportunity to express this truth through a pro-life ovation, to utilize and share their unique creativity and perspective, and to expand their knowledge of life issues. Contact New Orleans Youth Programs Director Ashley Gilliam at or 504.754.8807 to find out more information!
