The Optimist Club Del Mar – Solana Beach to sponsor essay contest for students

The Del Mar – Solana Beach Optimist Club is asking area students to contemplate the phrase “How Can I Help My Friends Realize their Value?”  as part of the Annual Optimist International Essay Contest for 2013.

David Eller, club president, said,  “Young students today have so many fresh ideas about the world and their future. This contest provides a wonderful opportunity to tap into their creativity, and to pursue possible scholarships at the same time. As Optimists it is our goal to encourage students, and do what we can to bring out the best in each of them.”

The Optimist Club will judge the essays based on the theme, and determine the top winners. The winning essay will be sent to the Optimist District level, and each District sends top entries to the International level.

College scholarships are available to top winners at the District level.

Club level cash awards: $150 (1ST); $100 (2ND); $75 (3RD.)

District level: $2,500 Collage Scholarship

District winners are entered into the International level judging, and one first-place winner will be awarded an engraved plaque and recognition in The Optimist Magazine.

Contest deadline is Feb. 22. For more essay contest information: Contact: Jon E. Vance at jon.vance @roadrunner.com or visit www.delmarsolanaoptimist.com.
