All young people can compete in the Optimist Oratorical Contest. The “Kids Speak Out” contest is a “pre-Oratorical” program that provides more equitable competition for younger speakers who are in elementary school (8-11 years old). The real test of this program is not who wins, but rather providing the opportunity for boys and girls to gain experience in speaking to an audience.
