Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest
Online Resources: Faith in Action - Community Programs - Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest; Chairman is Sir Knight William McCauley, FMFD, FDD
The Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest to encourage today’s youth to be more connected to their community and their faith. The goal of this program is to involve young Catholics in 8th through 12th grade (public, private, parochial or home schools) in civic discourse and instill in them religious and life affirming values. Entrants will be judged on grammar, style, and how clearly they present the theme – which should showcase
creativity, imagination and overall development of the topic.
This year’s topic is especially timely, as it encourages young people to discuss how their faith has helped them to persevere during a difficult time and to share what they learned with others:
In an essay of 500-750 words, 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.
All essays should be submitted to the local Council by November 30, 2021 for judging. The Council needs to send up to five winning essays (one for each grade) to their District Deputy by December 20, 2021. Grand Knights, please report in an email to Bill McCauley the numbers of essays you received by grade. I need to receive up to five essays from each District (one in each grade) by January 8, 2022 so the State judges can select
the winning essays for Utah and submit them to Supreme by January 31, 2022.
Councils can determine their own prizes of cash and/or certificates and/or something else. The State will award certificates and a check for $25 (1st place), $20 (2nd place), and $15 (3rdplace ) for the winning essays in each of the five (5) grade levels, for a maximum of $300. Remember, this is a Faith in Action Community Program.
Calendar Note: January 8, 2022 is the day of the State Midyear Meeting in Bountiful, Utah. District Deputies can bring their winners to the meeting and not actually mail the winning district essays.
Online resources are here. The Program Kit may be ordered through Supplies Online for $5 (includes UPS ground shipping).
