DM/SB Optimist announces essay contest winners

The Optimist Club of Del Mar/Solana Beach recently announced Jeremie Johnson, an eight grader at Nativity School, won their annual essay contest.

This year’s theme was “The Power of Youth.”

Johnson was presented with a $150 check and a certificate of excellence. Sarah Seiber won second place and Peter Dohoney won third.

The winning essay will now be judged at the Optimists District level and possibly, eventually, to the Optimist International competition where the winner will receive a college scholarship.
