The Optimist Club of Oakville believes it is important that the youth of our community are recognized for their efforts and accomplishments in the arts, athletics, academics and community service. On an annual basis in November, we honor the accomplishments of students in our community. Each secondary school in Oakville is invited to select one candidate based on their participation in volunteering services within their school and community. These award winners are role models for the youth of our community. It is very inspiring to meet these youth. The students and their parents are invited to an Optimist Club dinner meeting where the awards are presented. Below is a photo of the award winners from November, 2016 and we will add a profile of each student each week.
