The remaining students who will be receiving local recognition from the Camillus Optimist Club are in the order in which they placed: Nathan Smith (second); Joseph Pelin (third); and Zoey Slater (fourth).

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.
