KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS CATHOLIC CITIZENSHIP YOUTH ESSAY CONTEST

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS CATHOLIC CITIZENSHIP YOUTH ESSAY CONTEST

The Knights of Columbus Council here at St Mary’s is sponsoring a Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest. It is open for young Catholic students in grades 8-12, and requires each entry to submit an essay of 500-750 words. One winner from each grade level locally will receive a $25 reward, and their entry will be sent on for the National competition.
This contest encourages today’s youth to be more connected to their community and their faith. The goal of this program is to involve young Catholics in grades 8 to 12 (public, private, parochial or home schools during the current school year) in civic discourse and instill in them religious and life-affirming values. Entrants will be judged on grammar, style, and how clearly they present the theme in a way that showcases creativity, imagination and overall development of the topic.
This year’s essay topic:
In an essay of 500-750 words, discuss how trusting in God during a difficult time has helped you or someone you know find the strength and hope to endure it. Consider especially those times when it was a challenge to understand why something was happening. Consider also sharing any lessons about faith and hope you or someone you know may have learned from this experience.
“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8).
Please submit your entry to the Knights of Columbus Council 17530 in an email form with Word attachment to Grand Knight Robert Gedeon at: rlgdds59@yahoo.com.
