Maryknoll Essay Contest: The theme for the 2017 Maryknoll Essay Contest is “Recognizing Violence and Promoting Peace.” In a world where violence is all around us - in the news, schools, communities, entertainment, etc. - Pope Francis calls us “to take a clear stand for creative and active nonviolence and against all forms of violence.” Students in Grades 6-12 are welcome to participate. Essays should cite examples of violence and tell what actions the student is taking or could take to promote peace. First-place prize is $1000, and winning essays will appear in the May/June 2018 issue of MARYKNOLL magazine. To read official rules, and to enter, please visit www.maryknollsociety.org/publications/essay-contest/ by November 10.
