Knights of Columbus Respect Life Contest

The New Hampshire Knights of Columbus is once again sponsoring a Student Respect Life Essay contest. The contest is open to any Junior High (grades 6 - 8) and Senior High (grades 9 - 12) student in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Knights of Columbus will provide up to six cash awards of $100 each. 

This year's contest theme is:

The world seems to offer fear and anxiety (e.g., COVID). Repeating the simple prayer, "Jesus, I trust in You", offers hope & peace. How do you explain this to someone experiencing fear (i.e., unplanned pregnancy, serious injury, etc.) ?

Deadline: Midnight, December 15, 2020

RULES: Essays may not be longer than 500 words; typed, and submitted as a PDF or Word Document and emailed to matu19@comcast.net.  Include student name, age, grade, school, parent name and address, phone, parish and email. Students may obtain help & information, including from parents, teachers, friends, and internet but the essay itself must be their own work.

Further contest details may be obtained from the Knights of Columbus NH contest chairman, John P. Matuszewski (603-434-4098), or Knights of Columbus NH State Pro-Life Chairman, Rob Distasio (603-595-7837).
