Kids: Have your say

Oratory contest planned

NEW HAVEN — The Yale Chapter of the NAACP will hold an oratory competition for high school students from the New Haven area beginning at 4 p.m. Nov. 2 at the African American House at Yale, 211 Park St.
Organizers said that with the election nearing, the event will allow area teens to voice their opinions on how the outcome will affect "the lives of their parents, and inevitably their futures as well."
The competition’s topic is: "Is America Ready for a Black President?" Scholarships will be awarded to the top three contestants.
Students enrolled at a New Haven high school can request an application by e-mailing
