New York State Right to Life held its 28th annual student oratory contest on May 8, 2010. Of the nine exceptional regional finalists to attend our 28th annual Oratory Contest, three students placed at the state-level. The first place winner will be advancing to the National Right to Life Jane B. Thompson Oratory Contest which will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 26, 2010.

The first place recipient was Katherine Elizabeth Kruk, winner of the Long Island Coalition for Life’s local oratory contest. Her award includes $1,000 plus accommodations and travel for her and a chaperone to attend the national contest. Second place winner was Anokhi Patel who advanced from the Westchester/ Putnam County Right to Life Committee’s local contest and received a $500 prize for her performance at the state-level contest. Third place winner Charlotte Clem represented the Syracuse Right to Life Committee and received a $200 award.

NYSRTL was greatly impressed with every student who participated in the contest and the dedication and leadership they have exhibited. We look forward to the better world we will all enjoy as a result of their efforts advocating for life.

NYSRTL is proud to have Katherine Elizabeth representing New York at the Jane B. Thompson Oratory Contest. We wish her the utmost success in her future endeavors.
