The Respect Life Apostolate sponsors an annual writing competition for 8th grade students planning to attend a Catholic high school or accredited Catholic home school program. Students compete for six partial scholarships and four-six honorable mention prizes.
Each year, over 70 schools and PSR programs participate, with more than 1,100 students submitting an entry. Finalists and scholarship winners are honored at a spring awards ceremony (May 1, 2018) with Archbishop Robert Carlson.
Submissions are now being accepted through Friday, Feb. 22, 2019! Applications are available from your parish, parish school, or Catholic home school association/co-op and must be submitted through these channels. You can also obtain a copy and more information from the RLA at email@example.com or 314-792-7555.
