Ross Commons Championship – Spencer Prize 2019


To honor the late Professor Emeritus John Spencer, Oratory Now announces the second annual speech competition for first-year students. Faculty-nominated speakers from Ross Commons will each have 3 minutes to respond to the following prompt: “Connect something you learned in a Middlebury class to something you care about. Can you get your Commons to care too?”


The winner will face off against four other Commons Champions on February 19 at the Grand Championship, in the Mahaney Center Robison Hall. The 2019 Spencer Prize winner will receive a $500 cash prize. Details at Free refreshments and admission.
