The 2022 Optimist International Visual Arts Competition is Now Open!

The Buffalo Lafayette Optimist Club invites children ages 11 or younger to join this year’s Visual Arts Competition! Participants are encouraged to submit their paintings or drawings that illustrate what the word “Optimism” means to them for a chance to receive a scholarship from Optimist International. The deadline for entries is April 10, 2022.

Please download the attached form and fill out page 2 to accompany your child’s work of art. We then ask that you reach out to BLOC President Pauline Leacock (paulineanne240 @ or text 716 523 5553) for instructions on where to deliver your child’s entry or if you have any further questions. We look forward to being inspired by your child’s creativity!
