POST 111 TO HOLD ORITORICAL CONTEST
The American Legion Post 111 is hosting the H.W. Dare Maness High School Scholarship Program, “A Constitutional Speech Contest“.
The purpose of the American Legion High School Oratorical Scholarship Program is to develop a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the Constitution of the United States, on the part of high school students. Other objectives of the contest include the development of leadership skills, the ability to think clearly and intelligently, and the preparation for acceptance of the duties and responsibilities, the rights, and privileges of American Citizenship. For additional details, view our Post here.
The Post is open for small group meetings (maximum of 18 people). The buildings have been disinfected and wiped down and will be disinfected after each meeting. There is a sign-off sheet near the front door of each of the buildings so that we can monitor the cleaning process.

What is Americanism
One of American Legion Post 111’s primary goals is to teach Americanism to the young Americans in the Conway SC area. As such we promote youth programs such as American Legion baseball, Palmetto Boys State, an annual Oratorical Competition, and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.
Americanism is the essential combination of Freedom, Justice, Individual Rights, and Responsibilities that define us and what we stand for. Americanism is also Pride in Country, expressed without reservation, and the duty Legionnaires have in imparting patriotic values to new generations.
