Attention ALL Abraham Erb students!!! Would you like to win up to $22,500.00?! The Optimist Clubs of Westvale-Waterloo and Twin Cities are hosting their annual Essay and Oratorical Contests again.

Or can you write an essay answering the question, “Can Society Function Without Respect”? If so, please go to the website listed below for more information on how you can apply to be part of these speaking and writing contests. The application deadline is January 15, 2018 and the contests occur in February and March, so don’t delay! Sign up today!
Everyone who participates will receive a certificate and you may even win some of the bigger prizes like gift certificates or money! The winning essays can go on to win $2,500 and the speeches are eligible to go on and compete for international scholarships totalling up to $22,500.00.
Abraham Erb has been well represented at these competitions in the past. Be sure to let your teachers know if you are participating this year. We would like to cheer you on! This contest is not school run so if you have any questions be sure to contact the Optimist Club directly. All the best!
