About the Interscholastic Prize Speaking Contest

The Interscholastic Prize Speaking Contest was organized each year by the Alumni Association for high school students in New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts beginning in 1912. The prize money was provided by the class of 1911. The event was designed to bring leading students from secondary schools to the New Hampshire campus to show them the available facilities as well as to encourage forensic activities in the high schools and academies.
