Now is the time to start working on your CPA

Hi everyone again. 
Please try and get a CPA submission done up for your club. This is a fun way to reflect on a important or fun community service project, youth activity or fundraiser from the current 2012-13 Optimist year.  CPA also helps down the road if your club would like to try the event again then all the information in one spot for someone else to follow.
The CPA submissions must be burned to CD and mailed directly to Optimist International for judging.

In the International competition, three award winners will be chosen – Best Film (for video clip entries), Best Writing in a CPA Entry (for .pdf file entries) and the Best Youth Activity.

The Best Youth Activity award will be presented to a Club that exemplifies the mission and vision of Optimist International through its service to youth. The project should be unique and innovative, meet a need of today’s young people, have an impact on the youth involved and have universal appeal, regardless of geography. All youth activity projects in both the Best Film and Best Writing in a CPA Entry category are eligible for this special award; fundraising projects will not be eligible.

International winners will receive a $500 check for their Club to utilize as they see fit. The winning projects will be featured in The Optimist magazine and on the Optimist website.

Winners will be encouraged to attend the International Convention, where their project can be showcased in the Bragger’s Hall.

You can learn more about preparing a CPA from our Optimist Academy tutorial "The Rules Have Changed ... the new CPA" which includes links to the forms needed for your CPA submission and the contest rules.
