Chilliwack Optimist Club shows off their winning essay contestants

Glenda Standeven presented medallions and prize money to the first, second and third place winners for the Chilliwack Optimist Club Essay Contest at a dinner recognition ceremony at Dakota's Restaurant on Saturday, April 2.

Standeven, chairperson for this event and a writer as well, said that it was difficult for the judges to choose a winner because all of the entries were excellent. The first place essay moves forward to the District Level competition where it will be judged with entries from other Optimist Clubs in British Columbia, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The winner at that level earns a $2,500 scholarship.
