Our Pro-Life student contests are not academic exercises but rather are conversation starters between students and parents or pastors/teachers regarding the value of life.
As these conversations take place two generations are in fact being equipped to communicate why every innocent life should be respected and protected – both the students and the adults.
We have contests open to various age groups from 2nd grade up to young adult. Scholarship awards are generous –$1000 first prize for both the Oratory Contest and Video Contest! Many of the contests also have opportunities to take the same entry and compete further in the National Right to Life contests.
Below is information regarding each of our MCRTL contests. For complete information on rules, submission dates, and registration click the links below. We can’t wait to hear from our future advocates!
