Optimist Club Oratorical Contest

Our Optimist Clubs do so many great things in their local communities, but one activity that binds us together is the Optimist Oratorical Contest. It has been around since 1928 making it the longest running program for Optimist International. The Optimist Oratorical Contest asks students under the age of 16 to speak on a predetermined subject and they have the opportunity to receive college scholarships for their efforts. The Optimist Oratorical Contest helps students develop poise and self confidence as they learn to effectively present what they think about and what is on their minds.

Here is a sample of what an Optimist Club Oratorical Contest looks like.
