Picture them speaking at the Optimist Oratorical Contest

The winners of the Pacific Northwest District - Optimist International Oratorical Contest for 2012 are Katrina Nguyen, 3rd place; Ester Frederick, 2nd place; and Matt Ferguson, 1st place.

All students gave a five minute presentation on the topic "How my optimism helps me overcome obstacles."

In an unusual occurrence, Matt was also named the winner of the PNW District - Optimist International Essay Contest. He won $2,500 for each effort, making his scholarship total for the weekend $5,000.

Thank  you to all of our participants in Optimist International scholarship programs this year and congratulations to our PNW District finalists. You rock.
