The Knights of Columbus Council 14255 sponsors a Pro-Life Essay Contest in the month of January to coincide with the March for Life and local pro-life events. Grade 7 students were asked write an essay or poem to reflect the general theme of respecting life, including thoughts on abortion, euthanasia, and the role that the Catholic Church plays in promoting a culture of life.
PRO-LIFE ESSAY CONTEST
At the school assembly on February 1, it was announced that Katelyn Bartos is the winner of this year's contest. Katelyn received a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble which was funded by the Knights of Columbus. Her poem is being published in the February 10, 2013 church bulletin.
Other finalists were Michael Maguire, Greg Klamert, Erin Wagner, Jacob Weber and Danielle Kastor.
We are very proud of our students who took the time to write. All of the essays and poems were very thoughtful. It is obvious that they understand what is means to be pro-life. The Knights plan to have the contest again next year.
