Optimist Club contests nurture valuable life skills

The Kewaunee Optimist Club has crowned a winner for its 2020 essay contest with the oratorical competition set for next month. James Cullen took home first place for his essay about this year’s theme, “Is optimism the key to achieving the dreams you imagine?” Board Member James Lemack says the winner at the local level receives a $250 scholarship and advances to districts. Lemack notes that writing and public speaking are both necessary skills to build a career.


In addition to holding the two competitions, the Kewaunee Optimist Club’s mission is to advance youth programs in the area.
