Dear Students, Teachers and Optimist Friends,

The Optimist Club of Dearborn would like to invite any Dearborn student under the age of 18 as of October 1st 2016 to participate in our Oratorical Optimist contest.  Cash prizes are awarded to the top three (3) boys and the top (3) girls who participate in the contest.  The Oratorical Contest gives youngsters the chance to speak on their thoughts of the future.  The topic is “What the World Gains from Optimism.”  Students should contact the language arts teachers for the official contest application submission.  The prize money to be awarded for 1st place will be $500.00, 2nd place pays $250.00, and 3rd place receives $150.00.  The contest is February 22nd, 2017.  We are hosting the event at the auditorium at the Dearborn Library from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  On March 8th we will award the prize money at our Optimist luncheon.

Please call or email me with any questions you might have.  Thank you for your interest!
