Youth Apostles sponsor pro-life poster contest

First slide

The Youth Apostles Institute is sponsoring its 19th annual pro-life poster contest. Participants in the contest are to create a pro-life meme.

Through the contest, the institute hopes to provide a means by which young people may express their pro-life beliefs and the values they have been taught at school. It also hopes to provide an activity that youth ministers and teachers may find useful to supplement or complement classroom ministry programs and instruction.

There will be two divisions: junior (grades 7 and 8) and senior (grades 9-12). Prizes include first place ($100), second place ($75), third place ($50) and honorable mention certificates.

RULES:

• Entries may be on 8.5"x11" or larger size paper, or on posterboard.

• Electronic entries accepted.
