YA 21st Annual Pro-life Essay Contest Is On!


The Youth Apostles Institute is holding its 21st annual pro-life essay contest! The theme is “Be Pro-life Because…”

Through the contest, we hope to provide a means by which young people may express their pro-life beliefs and the values they have been taught. We also hope to provide an activity that may find to be a useful supplement or complement to classroom instruction, ministry, and home instruction.

There will be two divisions: Junior (grades 7 and 8) and Senior (grades 9-12). Prizes include first place ($100), second place ($75), and third place ($50). Honorable mention certificates also will be awarded.

Entries may be on paper or in electronic form and are to be up to 400 words long. They must include:unborn baby

* Name

* Grade level

* School OR youth group/youth community OR parish if home schooled

* School address OR parish address OR home address if home schooled

Entries must address the topic and express a pro-life view embracing respect for unborn

human life. Entries must be mailed, delivered, or sent by e-mail by Monday, April 20, 2015 to:
