TELL CITY – Destiny Brumfield, a senior at Tell City Junior-Senior High School, recently won the Optimist Club of Tell City’s essay contest, based on a theme of “How my Positive Outlook Benefits my Community.”
Brumfield was awarded the first-place gold medal for the honor. In addition, the essay will be sent to the district level to be judged along with winners from other Optimist clubs in the district. College scholarships are available for top winners at the district level.
The winner of the district competition will be sent to the international-level contest. One international winner will be chosen and will receive an engraved plaque and recognition in The Optimist magazine.
“Destiny Brumfield did a wonderful job of articulating this year’s theme. She expressed herself through the essay and deserved the honor of first place,” Club President Curtis Cronin said.
