This came through an email chain in which I take part.
HSLDA is hosting an essay contest:
This year’s themes are taken from the Bible in the book of Romans, Chapter 12. Paul, the author of the book, provides amazingly succinct and practical instructions on how to live life to the fullest.
Contestants may each submit up to two essays based on the verse from Romans 12 that coincides with their age group listed below:
Category 1 (ages 7–10):
“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.”—Romans 12:15
Category 2 (age 11–14):
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”—Romans 12:12
Category 3 (ages 15–19):
“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, be at peace with everyone.”—Romans 12:18
