Ohio University students took to the stage to inform, persuade, and advocate at the OU Oratory (OUO) Public Speaking Competition on April 11 and 13, 2018.
Nate Fielder was selected as the 2018 OUO Champion for his informative address on Mohammed Ali. He also received the People’s Choice Award from his peers for his performance and his instructor, Sonia Ivancic, earned the top instructor award as Nate’s COMS 1030 Instructor.
Joining Fielder in the top-three placings were Sophia Marusic (2nd) and Taylor Williams (3rd), who presented a persuasive speech on music’s benefits to math education and a metaphor address on race and social labels. Hannah Beatty and Josh Pena completed the final round contenders, presenting on young adult suicide and the cost of textbooks.
The OUO is a public speaking competition designed for students who are enrolled in COMS 1030 or have recently completed the course. They current style of the OUO showcase began in 2017 and was preceded in years prior with other formats. In all, all versions of the showcase have given students an additional platform to apply the skills they have learned and share their voice with the Bobcat community.
The award winners receive monetary prizes and gift cards to local businesses.
This year, the contest was sponsored by Brenen’s, Casa Nueva, Court Street Coffee, Whit’s Frozen Custard and Coffeehouse, Wings Over, Insomnia Cookies, Zoe’s, Bluetique, Lotsa, and Passionworks’ Studio. ... See MoreSee Less
