Time to promote Optimist Scholarship Programs

September! Now is the best time to begin promoting Optimist International Scholarship Programs. Get on your teachers' lesson plans today with the following opportunities:

Optimist Essay Contest: Topic - "The Power of Youth"

Optimist Oratorical Contest: Topic - "For me, optimism is..."

Click on the links to find out more. All Optimist scholarship programs begin at the club level. Clubs are encouraged to attend the First Quarter District Meeting on October 31-November 1 to learn all about district deadlines, rules for submission and advancing in competition, and to discuss new ideas to promote contests in your community.

Students should contact a local Optimist Club to participate. Click here to find a club near you.
