This year, Optimist International officially retired the CPA Binder and completely changed how clubs submit a CPA.  Learn more about the changes and what you need to do to compete for an award.

The Community Projects Awards (CPA) Program is an annual competition that recognizes Clubs for the projects they sponsor within their communities.  Prior to 2012-13, clubs would complete a multi-page report and include copies of material that they used to run a community service project or fund raiser.  Those reports would be placed in a binder and then judged at the District 1st Quarter meeting each fall.

Starting with the 2012-13 Optimist year, the CPA program is all digital! The digital entry process encourages participation, streamlines the submission process and provides the best possible resource for Clubs looking for new project ideas.
