San Nicolas, Attorney General of the NMI, was a judge at the 29th Annual Attorney General’s Cup Speech Competition held on May 3, 2013, in the Supreme Court Courtroom in Saipan, NMI.

This topic for this year was, “Should the Commonwealth Government enact legislation that encourages economic development in the Northern Mariana Island?” U.S. Attorney Limtiaco was one of ten judges from both Guam and Saipan. Eight student finalists all from different high schools gave their speeches as they battled to receive the CNMI Attorney General’s Cup.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office commends and congratulates the participating students of Kagman High School, Marianas High School, Mount Carmel School, Tinian Junior/Senior High School, Saipan Southern High School, Dr. Rita H. Inos Junior/Senior High School, Grace Christian Academy and Marianas Baptist Academy, for their outstanding efforts and advocacy at the 29th Annual Attorney General’s Cup Speech Competition. The students demonstrated their impressive critical thinking, research, debate and public speaking skills as they presented on this year’s speech competition issue, and are deserving of special recognition and acknowledgement for their commitment, hard work and diligent efforts,” stated U.S. Attorney Limtiaco.
