Ready, set, action!

Optimist Clubs perform 65,000 projects in local communities each year. Which one is your favorite? How is your Optimist Club making a difference?

Optimist International invites you to tell your club's project story in a video with the first annual Reel Optimism campaign. Sponsored by the Optimist International Foundation, your winning entry might be awarded a grant for your Optimist Club. First prize is $1,000; second prize is $500; and third prize is $250. Entries must be received by March 1, 2013. 



 According to the Optimist International website, this is how you enter:
  1. Using the creativity of your Club Members and resources in your community to create a short, three minute or under, video answering the question, "What does Optimism mean to you and your Club?"
  2. Upload your finished video to YouTube by March 1, 2013. Your video submission must include your Club name and the hashtag #ReelOptimism. Including this hashtag will make it easier for us to find your submission.
  3. (To upload a video, you must have a YouTube account. For help uploading a video, click here.)
  4. Include a video description and "tags" for your video.
  5. After the video is uploaded, email the video link to reeloptimism@optimist.org.
