The New Hampshire Knights of Columbus are once again sponsoring a Student Pro-Life Essay, Poster and Video Contest in conjunction with the National March For Life in Washington, D.C.

The essay and poster contest is open to New Hampshire junior high students (grades 6-8) and senior high students (grades 9-12). The video contest is for senior high students and college-age amateur filmmakers.

Entries are first submitted to the national contest, which will make awards of $100 in each category ($1,200 total), plus trips to Washington for winning students and parent in each category.

Entries are then provided to the New Hampshire Knights of Columbus, who will make up to six additional awards of $100.

The theme is “Adoption: A Noble Decision.” The deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 3.
