About The Pro-Life Essay Contest

Montgomery County Right to Life Pro-Life Essay ContestThe MCRTL Essay Contest is actually 2 contests – a junior high contest and a senior high contest.  Each year the Essay Contest provides a wonderful conversation starter for parents and students regarding the fundamental issue of the value of life!  This outreach is an opportunity for MCRTL to further encourage a Pro-Life worldview in our community.

Through the process of composing the essays, contest participants examine their beliefs regarding the sanctity of life and receive training in communicating those beliefs.  Every year the student essays speak powerfully to the value of life and these young leaders’ commitment to it! Read more.
