Optimist Club Oratorical Contest is coming in the spring.  More information will follow as to when the local contest will be held and the topic to prepare for.

Background​
Since its start in 1928, the Optimist Oratorical Contest
has become the longest-running program sponsored by
Optimist International. The contest is designed for youth to
gain experience in public speaking, perfect self-expression,
gain self-assurance, improve communication skills, and
provide them with the opportunity to compete for a college
scholarship.

Interested youth should prepare a 4 to 5 minute speech
on the assigned topic to be presented at their local Optimist
Club’s contest. The speeches are judged at the Club level,
Zone level, District Regional level (if needed) and then at the
District level prior to the Optimist International Oratorical
World Championships. Clubs and Districts may choose to
allow contestants to compete via online streaming.
