Students are asked to choose optimism for the Optimist International scholarship contests

As we head into a new administrative year for Optimist International, we also head into a new season of scholarship contests for students. 

We're excited for the Optimist Clubs in the Pacific Northwest District to help students choose optimism by writing, speaking, or signing about these topics. 

The Optimist International Essay Contest takes place between September and February. The official topic for 2020-2021 is "Reaching your Dreams by Choosing Optimism." Download the entry form.

The Optimist International Oratorical Contest takes place between January and May. The official topic for 2020-2021 is “Healing the World with Optimism.” Download the entry form.

Optimist International partnered with St. Louis University to expand the Oratorical Contest in 2016. This year, in the fourth year of the partnership, we expect it to improve even more! District winners will compete on an international stage where they have the opportunity to win up to $22,500 in scholarship money.The Optimist International Communication Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH) takes place betweenJanuary and May. The official topic for 2020-2021 is “Healing the World with Optimism.” Download the entry form.

When specific dates and the PNW District Chairpersons are announced, we will update the information on this website. For now, please share this contest with students, parents, teachers, and all others who are helping students learn from home.
