YOUTH ESSAY COMPETITION
There will be two essay competitions this year. One is the Supreme Competition and another is at the Council/Chapter and state level. The purpose of the essays is to promote an awareness of responsibility and accountability of the students in their Catholic education. Involvement is quite easy and helps develop a relationship between your Council and the youth of the community. The students and their parents become aware of the Knights and their role and involvement in today’s society.
Start by contacting all the Catholic schools in your area and the Youth ministries in your parishes. They will be more aware of the ideals on which our Order was founded, and they should be willing to participate.
