The Optimist Club of Raleigh supports the achievement of our
outstanding local youth in hopes that they will become outstanding civic leaders
in their communities.
Since 1957, Optimist Clubs have recognized youth for their talents
in the arts, athletics, academics, and for contributions to community.
Youth Appreciation Week provides one such opportunity
for this recognition.
This year the Optimist Club of Raleigh will celebrated Youth
Appreciation Week on March 23, 2015 by
awarding two scholarships to Wake County high school seniors, based on
academic and extra-curricular accomplishments and level of community
involvement. This scholarship can be used at any accredited university,
college or trade/vocational school. Note:
Application deadlines have been extended due to recent adverse
weather. Applications must now be postmarked no later than March
5 and received no later than March 8, 2015!
