Toyota Financial Services (TFS) has been an industry leader in building better futures by empowering youth through education. For nearly a decade, TFS has honored this commitment by sponsoring WJZ’s (CBS13-Baltimore) Black History Oratory Competition. This year’s competition will be held at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, and will feature 20 semi-finalists participating in live oration.
Through the support of TFS, Baltimore youth have the opportunity to demonstrate their oratory aptitude, inspired by the excellence of such celebrated trailblazers as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Marian Wright Edelman, George Washington Carver, and Dr. Mae Jemison. TFS will be presenting a $2000 Grand Prize scholarship to the winner. In addition, a $1000 scholarship is awarded to the 1st runner up, and a $500 scholarship is awarded to the 2nd runner up. This is just another way TFS is Making Life Easier for youth.
