Alaska Native Oratory Society seeks someone to plan annual speech competition

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

The Alaska Native Oratory Society is looking for someone to help plan the annual speech competitions at the UAA campus.

The Alaska Native Oratory Society is a learning community and a series of speaking events that provide opportunities for Alaska Native, Native American and Non-Native high school and university students to develop their oratory skills through participation in four speech categories: oratory, declamation, storytelling, and Native languages.

Learning to speak out in AkNOS also brings students back to their communities, family members and Elders as they ask for assistance, guidance, and teaching to learn how to speak in the styles important in their communities and regions.

Contact the AKNOS Director, Nancy Furlow, at (907) 786-6136 or afnjf1@uaa.alaska.edu for more information.
