On November 13, we honoured 14 Oakville high school students for their incredible accomplishments in their schools and in the community. Always one of our favourite annual Optimist events, these youth are prime examples of the empowerment and dedication of young people to make a difference in our world. Congratulations to each of you and your families who are so justifiably proud of each of you. Stay tuned for individual photos and highlights of their achievements as we provide details of each student's accomplishments.
The 2017-18 Essay and Oratorical Competition rules, registrations and application forms are now available on our website under the Programs tab on our menu. The details also include topics for these competitions, scholarships available to winners, deadlines for submitting applications as well as photos and video of last year's competitors. We look forward to receiving your applications!

The Junior Optimist Club of Oakville was recognized by Junior Optimist International as a Distinguished Honour Club for 2016-17 because of their numerous projects and assistance in creating two additional new Junior Optimist Clubs. People often ask what does a JOI club do? This photo captures their impact in the community - from September to June, they volunteered 766 hours, impacting 1182 children, which is 38 children impacted per member of the JOI Club. Congratulations to every one of you for a successful and fun year. We took this photo of the group on Awards night, when they also receive their individual medallions for their accomplishments.
