Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Contest
The Knights of Columbus St Joseph Council #12354 is proud to sponsor a Catholic Citizenship Contest. The Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Essay is open to all Catholic students, in grades 8-12. Prizes are awarded to 1st and 2nd place winners in each grade level. The theme of the essay is Living a Life of Authentic Catholic Faith.
Students are encouraged to write a 500-750 word essay, which describe everyday obstacles that you may have
experienced or witnessed others experiencing while living a life of authentic faith. Explain how you have overcome these obstacles and how, by doing so, it has helped your faith to continue to grow.
An entry form must accompany the essay. The essays must reflect the assigned theme and be the student’s original work. The student’s name should appear only on the official Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest entry form which must be stapled to the essay. Essays can be turned in to the parish office or collection basket, or directly to the St. Joseph Council Knights of Columbus. Essays must be turned in between September 4 – October 5.
