The contest is open to all Tennessee high school students, grades 9 - 12.
Contestants must research, write, and present an original pro-life speech on the topics of abortion, infanticide, stem cell research or euthanasia. Great prize opportunities include cash, college scholarships, and an all-expense paid trip for the state winner and a parent to the 2019 National Right to Life Convention in Charleston, South Carolina. The contest has three phases:
- Contestants compete in a local competition. See below for local contest application and contest rules.
- Local winners advance to the state competition to be held on April 27 at Saint Cecilia Academy in Nashville. Registration begins at 12:00 noon CDT and the competition begins at 1:00 p.m.
- The state winner advances to the national competition to be held on Saturday, July 6 at the Embassy Suites in Charleston, South Carolina in conjunction with the 2019 National Right to Life Convention.
Please consider how you might support this important project. Youth-oriented gifts and cash contributions are needed to fund prizes as well as traveling expenses to the national competition for Tennessee's winner.
