2018 Essay Contest Winners Honored

Madelynn Hilgenbrink Advances to District Competition

Madelynn Hilgenbrink, a junior at Quincy Notre Dame, is this year’s winner of the Optimist Club of Quincy’s annual essay contest.  Hilgenbrink and eight other local students submitted essays on the topic of “Can Society Function Without Respect?”  For winning the local contest, Hilgenbrink received $100.  She will now advance to the District contest where she’ll compete for a $2,500 college scholarship.  The winner of the District contest will be sent to the international level.

The contestants were graded on a number of areas, including creativity, vocabulary and presentation.  The top three contestants read their essays at the weekly meeting of the Optimist Club on February 27.  Ali Tracy received $75 for her second place essay and Alexandra Borrowman was awarded $50 for third place.  Both are juniors at Quincy Notre Dame.

The Essay Contest is sponsored by Optimist International to give young people the opportunity to write about their own opinions regarding the world in which they live.  The approach can encompass a young person’s personal experience, the experience of their country or a more historical perspective.
