2020-21 Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest

All Catholic students in public, private and parochial schools grades 8-12, are invited to participate in the 2020-21 Knights of Columbus Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest.

In an essay of 500-750 words, students are encouraged to discuss how trusting in God during a difficult time has helped you or someone you know find the strength and hope to endure it. Consider especially those times when it was a challenge to understand why something was happening. Consider also sharing any lessons about faith and hope you or someone you know may have learned from this experience.
“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8).

The local contest will be hosted by Bernard P. O’Brien Council 3956 Knights of Columbus in Southgate, Michigan.
