Essay Contest

2017 Annual K of C Essay Contest

The council recently sponsored its annual K of C Essay Contest. Today’s Catholic youth will become the Catholic adults of tomorrow. By their actions and decisions, today’s young Catholics will play a major role in the future direction of the Catholic Church.

As Knights, it is our obligation to fight for the Church; it is of paramount importance to strengthen the foundation of Catholic principles and teachings in the hearts and minds of the youth. The contest opens the doors of young minds, enabling the entrants to be creative, thoughtful and introspective in their work.

At this year's council level of competition, first place was won by Austin Scheffel, second place was taken by Mattie Lively, and third place was won by Abby Calhoon. Congratulations to each of them and the other seven entries from the 8th grade of Our Lady Queen of Peace School.
