Programs 

American Legion Oratorical Contest

The American Legion Oratorical Contest exists to develop deeper knowledge and appreciation for the U.S. Constitution among high school students. Since 1938, the program has presented participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation’s laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship. 

The contact for Post 19 is Alison Lawton. If you need more information please visit the contact us page, send a message for Alison about Oratorical information

Arkansas Boys State

During their week at Arkansas Boys State, delegates are assigned a political party, city, and county. Throughout the week, delegates, from the ground up, administer this mock government as if it were real: they run for office, draft and pass legislation, solve municipal challenges, and engage constituents. By the week’s end, the delegates have experienced civic responsibility and engagement firsthand while making life-long memories and friends — all with the guiding principle that “Democracy Depends on Me.”

The contact for Arkansas Boys State is Chris Nalepa. If you need more information please visit the contact page, send a message for Chris about Arkansas Boys State.

American Legion Baseball

American Legion Baseball is a national institution, having thrived through a world war, several national tragedies, and times of great prosperity as well as great despair.

The league still stands behind the traditional values upon which it was founded in 1925. American Legion Baseball has taught hundreds of thousands of young Americans the importance of sportsmanship, good health and active citizenship. The program is also a promoter of equality, making teammates out of young athletes regardless of their income levels or social standings. American Legion Baseball has been, and continues to be, a stepping stone to manhood for millions of young men who have gone on to serve their country or community, raise families or play the sport at the highest level.

The contact for American Legion Baseball is Chris Nalepa. There will be more information about the team we sponsor after January meetings.

Habitat for Humanity

OIP (1).jfif

At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. When a family helps build or improve a place they can call home, they are also building a better community, a better life for themselves. 

Koffee with a Kause is a local koffee shop on the perimeter of Downtown and also located off of I-30 at our Bryant location. We give back to our community every month by giving 10% of our profits on our "Kause Day," which is the last Saturday every month. Koffee with a Kause started from the ground up back in 2014. The Voth's started this business because Jared used to work at a rehab center for men recovering. It was always a struggle to find supply to house the men and The Voth's wanted to reach their community in a whole new way. Koffee with a Kause not only wants to love the local community, but also offer tasty koffee as well!
