North Carolina Right to Life's Oratory Contestant,
Nikita Chintalapudi, Places 3rd in Competition
Each year, National Right to Life holds the Jane B. Thompson Oratory Contest to determine who the top orator is among the state affiliates who send contestants to compete. The competition, held in conjunction with the National Right to Life convention, was held in Washington, DC on June 30, 2012.
This year, North Carolina Right to Life was pleased to have Nikita Chintalapudi, an homeschooled junior from Cary, NC to represent the organization at the competition. Nikita was one of 4 finalist who gave her speech during one of the final workshop slots prior to the closing banquet. The competition was very stiff so it was especially gratifying that that Nikita was chosen as the 3rd place finisher, the highest finish for any contestant from North Carolina.
If you are a high school junior or senior who wishes to participate in the 2013 North Carolina Right to Life (NCRTL) competition to determine who will represent North Carolina, please contact NCRTL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
