The 33rd Annual Attorney General’s Cup Speech Competition will be held on May 5 at the Guma Hustisia at 9am. This year, eight high schools will be participating, including Marianas High School, Saipan Southern High School, Kagman High School, Grace Christian Academy, Marianas Baptist Academy, Dr. Rita H. Inos High School, Mt. Carmel School, and Saipan International School.
Students are busy preparing their speeches for this year’s topic, which is focused on federalism and the rights of the Commonwealth under the Covenant. The subject matter will be explored in the context of management of natural resources for the benefit of the public, and will focus on whether local control or federal management is the better approach.
“This is a very interesting and appropriate issue for our students to learn more on the interplay between the federal authority and the Commonwealth’s self-governance under the Covenant,” said Attorney General Edward Manibusan. “I am really looking forward to hearing what the students learned on this topic.”
The OAG welcomes the public to attend and witness the remarkable showcase of the talented students of the CNMI.
