Optimist Clubs recognize the Power of Youth

The Power of Youth was the topic for the 26th Annual Optimist International Essay Contest. In 1983, Optimist International added essay writing to their list of recommended programs for Optimist Clubs to conduct. All contests begin at the Optimist Club level and advance through Zone, and District competition in an effort to win scholarships from $650 to $6,500.

Congratulations to the clubs for recognizing their youthful competitors in the local media:
Optimist Club of Kingston, Jamaica
Caribbean's best essay writers
The Optimist Club of Del Mar/Solana Beach
