    First Place Senior Division YA Prolife Poster Contest

    The winners have been selected in the 22nd annual Youth Apostles Institute Pro-life Essay Contest. The theme was “Message to an Expectant Mother.”

    This essay contest generated the highest number of entries we have ever had for an essay contest! There were 473 entries.

    Participants were to write a message to an expectant mother. Many messages were beautiful, touching, personal, heartfelt, passionate, and supportive. They evinced a clear appreciation for the value of unborn human life, but also the need for care and sensitivity to women in potentially difficult situations.

    Senior Division participants came from Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School, Oakcrest, Paul VI High School, Seton School and The Heights. Junior Division participants came from Angelus Academy, Holy Cross Academy, Holy Family School, St. Bernadette School, St. Francis of Assisi School, St. Michael School and St. Timothy School.

    Through the contest, we hope to provide a way for young people to express their pro-life beliefs and principles, as well as to provide teachers, youth ministers, and parents with an activity they can use as a complement to instruction and ministry.
