Optimist Club Oratorical Contest

The Optimist Club of Oakville invites students to participate in its 2014-2015 Oratorical Contest (that's public speaking for the rest of us), held on Thursday April 2nd, 2015. 

The topic this year is "How My Optimism Will Help Me Press On to Greather Achievements of the Future". Entrants must be under 19 years of age and have not yet graduated from high school. Interested students should prepare a 4-5 minute speech on the assigned topic. Further information about the contest can be found on the club website at

Cash prizes for 1st $500.00, 2nd $350.00 and 3rd $150.00 will be awarded by the club. In addition, the top two contestants will represent Oakville at the Zone competition, with the opportunity to advance to the district level where the top three prizes are $2500, $1500 and $1000.

The contest will be held in the Optimist Meeting Room at the Children's Safety Village, at the Halton Regional Centre, 1151 Bronte Rd just north of the QEW. The event begins at 7:00 PM. 

Applications are available from Mr. Dick in Guidance, and must be mailed in, along with a photocopy of a birth certificate or passport before Monday March 23rd, 2015. In order to make sure they are mailed by then, they need to be in to Mr. Dick by the Friday before March Break.
