More Chances to Write and Win!


















Dear Religious Educators,

Welcome back to another school year! May God bless you and your students in the exciting months ahead.

I am so happy to see that Ave Maria Press is sponsoring an essay contest on Blessed Basil Moreau for you and your students.

I think it is a great idea for your students to consider entering this and other writing and poster contests. Here are a couple more that my students have entered over the years. I offered them as a substitute for one of my more conventional reflection essays. Unfortunately, none of my students ever won. However, those few who took the opportunity to do something a bit different enjoyed the challenge and the chance to express themselves to a larger audience.

  • The first is from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. The topic is on the timely theme of peace—“Put Away Your Sword.” You can find the particulars at the Maryknoll website.
  • The second is a poster contest sponsored by the Christophers on the theme of “You Can Make a Difference.” Its deadline is January 18, 2008. There is a downloadable entry form found on the Christopher website.
Good luck to your students.
