The 35th Annual Attorney General’s Cup Speech Competition will be held this Friday, May 3, starting at 9am at the former SandCastle, now called the Hyatt Regency Saipan ballroom.
This year, the competition focuses on the legalization of cannabis in the Commonwealth: Is the passage of Public Law 20-66 a cure or a curse for the Commonwealth? Will it help or hurt the CNMI in the short term or the long term?
Seven high schools will be participating in the competition and they include: Dr. Rita Inos High School, Eucon International School, Grace Christian Academy, Marianas High School, Mount Carmel High School, Saipan Southern High School, and Kagman High School.
Judging the competition this year are current and former attorneys general, Guam Attorney General Leevin T. Camacho, Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro, Presiding Judge Roberto C. Naraja, and Chief Judge for the District Court of the NMI Ramona V. Manglona.
The ceremonial posting of the colors will be conducted by the JROTC Dolphin Battalion of Marianas High school, and alongside performing the CNMI and National anthem are the talented Marianas High School Glee Club.
The competition will be live streamed via the CNMI Attorney General’s Cup Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/2019CNMIAGCUP. Additionally, the broadcasting group of Marianas High School will perform the video production of the speech competition. (PR)
