The Finalists have been selected and it’s time to vote for the winner.
Each competitor was tasked with doing his or her best to encapsulate, within a 1-minute video (perhaps with a slight grace period), what makes a particular competitive OSDA event great. This year’s Finalists represent the events of International Extemporaneous Speaking, Public Forum Debate, and Original Oratory.

Now YOU get to decide who wins the $100 scholarship from the OSDA, and which event is best represented for the year.
One of these three finalists will be announced the RYE Winner at the State Finals Awards Ceremony in Sylvania. Votes are limited to one per person/account, so get out the vote!
Voting will be open until sometime shortly before the Awards Ceremony at State Finals on Saturday, March 3, 2018.
Best of luck to you all!
