Creative Writing Contest Awards Assembly

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

The RLA sponsors an annual writing competition for 8th grade students planning to attend a Catholic high school.

Students write about the virtue of chastity and how this virtue relates to abortion. The RLA feels it is very important for young people to understand this virtue, especially in light of the often casual attitude toward sexual relationships in our society today.

At the Awards Assembly, four winners will be announced from approximately 100 finalists.

Four $1,000 scholarships are awareded to the winning writers:

  • One (1) Bishop O'Donnell Scholarship honors a student from a Catholic elementary school.
  • One (1) Mary Forrestal-Hennessey Scholarship awards a student from a public grade school who attends a Parish School of Religion program.
  • Two (2) Mr. and Mrs. George Kletzker Scholarships award students from either kind of school.
