Tri-County Optimist Club - FORMS

2018-2019 Essay & Oratorical Forms & Notices

Background

Optimist International sponsors three scholarship contests.  Our Tri-County Optimist Club annually conducts an Essay and Oratorical contest for students.  These contests provide students with the opportunity to earn money to pursue their college education. The contests are conducted initially at the Club level, then Zone and Regional (if necessary) and at the District level. District-level scholarships are funded by the Optimist International Foundations and awarded by Optimist International.

 

Essay Contest
This Essay Contest requires students who are educated in the United States, Canada or the Caribbean to compose a 700 to 800-word essay around a central idea. The contest is designed to develop writing and critical thinking skills. One scholarship of $2,500 per District is awarded by Optimist International each year.  Locally, students are given gift cards and medals for their efforts.

 

The 2018-2019 topic for the Essay Contest is "When All the World's Problems are Solved, is Optimism still Necessary?"  Deadline for submission of entries is January 31, 2019.

Oratorical Contest
The Oratorical Contest is open to students who are educated in the United States, Canada or the Caribbean. Students are required to prepare a 4 to 5-minute speech on a pre-assigned topic. This contest is designed to assist youth in gaining public speaking experience and provide them with an opportunity to compete for scholarships of up to $22,500.  Locally, students are given gift cards and medals for their efforts.

 

The 2018-2019 topic for the Oratorical Contest is "Is there a Fine Line between Optimism and Reality?"  The live contest will be at a venue in The Villages, FL and the deadline for submission of speeches is February 22, 2019.
