2017 Pro-Life Youth Essay Contest

Each year, St. Joseph County Right to Life sponsors an essay contest for middle-school and high-school youth. This is a chance for young pro-life leaders to grow in articulating their convictions and to be recognized for doing so. The contest is judged in two divisions, the first division consisting of 7th and 8th grade students and the second division consisting of 9th-12th grade students. A cash prize is awarded to the top male and female in each division.
