For the second year, the Committee for Religious Liberty and the Committee on Catholic Education are collaborating with Our Sunday Visitor Institute to host a religious liberty essay contest.
The competition is open to high school juniors and seniors. Essays are due March 24, 2023. Winners will be announced in May 2023. The first-place essay will be published in Our Sunday Visitor, and the author will receive a $2,000 scholarship. The second-place winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship; third place will receive a $500 scholarship. All three winning essays will also be published on the USCCB website.
The essays will be judged by a panel of representatives from Notre Dame Law School, the University of Dallas, and Becket, among others.
