YA Announces Pro-Life Poster Contest

The Youth Apostles Institute is holding its 14th annual pro-life poster contest!

The theme for the contest is “I Formed You in the Womb.”

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 at school, in ministry,and at home. We also hope to provide an activity that teachers may find to be a useful supplement or complement to classroom instruction.

There will be two divisions: Junior (grades 7 and 8) and Senior (grades 9-12).

Prizes include first place ($100 U.S. Savings Bond), second place ($75 U.S. Savings Bond), and third place ($50 U.S. Savings Bond). Honorable mention certificates also will be awarded.

AND: First place posters will be made available for use in the March for Life!
