Optimist International and Saint Louis University have partnered to host the 3rd Annual Optimist International Oratorical World Championships at Saint Louis University's Center for Global Citizenship on Thursday, June 28 and Friday, June 29.

Each Optimist District has the exciting opportunity to send one of their District Oratorical winners to St. Louis to compete with the winners of the Districts in their Region for a scholarship valued at $5,000 or more. The winner of each Region (eight winners total) will compete with the winner from Saint Louis University’s Global Region for a $15,000, $10,000, or $5,000 World Championship scholarship. There is the potential for a student to win $22,500 or more in scholarships!

There will be a workshop at the Optimist International Convention to see how your Club can be a part of this exciting venture. For more information, contact programs@optimist.org.
