Optimist Club members in the Pacific Northwest District came together April 29-30, 2016 for the third quarter meeting, popular with some because of the amazing Optimist International communications contests.
During the weekend, members were delighted by the poise and opinions of a number of young adults in the Optimist International Oratorical Contest and the Communications Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH). Group shots of the students are shown below (top Oratorical; bottom CCDHH)
We also heard the winning essay, hailing from Vancouver North Shore Optimist Club, for the Optimist International Essay Contest.
During this weekend alone, $12,500 in scholarship money was awarded to students in the PNW District-Optimist International. Congratulations to all.
