Once again, our Pro-Life Essay Contest has brought new writers and new expressions to the forefront! MCRTL is excited to announce the winners of our Junior and Senior High contests.  Our winners represent local public schools, private schools, and home schools. We are especially thankful for Mary Stockton, Rachel Saltarelli, and Crystal Chapman.  These teachers had excellent responses when they encouraged their students to participate! Pictured are students from Mary’s class enjoying the party that MCRTL awards for classroom participation.  The parties allow for further discussion about the value of life even drawing in the students who did not participate directly in the contest.  

Below are the names of the contest winners.  Please click the students’ names to read their winning essays. Congratulations are due to all the students and their families who participated. As our students, their parents, and even their siblings think, discuss, and express themselves in writing, their beliefs are solidified.  The contests further affirm their beliefs and strengthen their ability to be a powerful voice in our community!
