Area 54 Speech and Evaluation Contest @ Columbia River Correctional Institution
Mar 26 @ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM


A staffing emergency within the Oregon Department of Corrections has forced the postponement of the Area 54 speech contest. Contest staff are now working to reschedule the event to a tentative date of March 26. I will keep this event updated as we finalize the details.

The Columbia River Correctional Institution is a restricted access facility that requires every visitor to undergo a screening process to include a criminal background check. If you wish to participate in the contest and haven’t visited the prison before, you will be required to submit your drivers license number and date of birth to CRCI at least three weeks before the event. The prison also enforces a dress code that prohibits guests from wearing denim clothing (e.g., blue jeans) and requires guests to dress in a non-suggestive manner. More information on how to acquire permission to enter the CRCI will be provided as soon as I receive it.
