Central State University Optimist Club will host an Oratorical contest for local youth on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 6 pm in the Paul Robeson Cultural & Performing Arts Center, Recital Hall.
Middle and High School students from the Wilberforce and Xenia communities will speak for 5 minutes on the Optimist International Topic: “How My Passions Impact the World.”
The winners from the contest will advance to a Zone competition with other area Optimist Clubs. Ultimately, winners have the opportunity to compete at a state level and the winners, both male and female, will each receive a $3,500 scholarship.
