"The Silvis Optimist Club is once again sponsoring the Oratorical Contest. 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. In order to compete, students will write a 4-5 minute speech on this year's topic: "Staying Optimistic in Challenging Times". Students who choose to participate will compete at UT on March 31st at 6:00pm. If you are interested in earning scholarship money and practicing some valuable skills, then email Mr. Greer at [email protected] by Friday, March 4th. He will help you with the writing and presentation of your speeches! We had 10 students last year - let's see if we can get even more!"
