The Essay Contest is sponsored by Optimist International to give young people the opportunity to write about their own opinions regarding the world in which they live. The approach can encompass a young person’s personal experience, the experience of their country or a more historical perspective. In additional to developing skills for written expression, participants also have the opportunity to win a college scholarship!
The Essay Contest winner receives a $300 scholarship, awarded at the Greater West Bloomfield Michigan Week Awards Breakfast. Club winners advance to the District contest to compete for a $2,500 college scholarship. The District-level scholarships are funded by the Optimist International Foundations.
Topic for the 2019-20 school year is: "Is Optimism the Key to Achieving the Dreams you iMagine?"
