The Father Ted Colleton Scholarship
The co-sponsors of the Father Ted Colleton Scholarship program, The Interim newspaper and Niagara Region Right to Life, are proud to announce the theme for the essay portion of the contest for the upcoming academic year 2014-2015.
This edition will be the 13th year of the scholarship and it continues to grow and draw young people into the pro-life movement as learners. More than 800 students have participated since its founding.
It is hoped that this challenging theme will generate creativity. This spring announcement should give motivated students a head start for the written portion of the contest.
Please note that three prizes are awarded: first place, $1500; second place, $800; and third place, $500.
The deadline for submissions this year will be midnight, Monday, December 1, 2014.
The scholarship program is open to all senior high school students (grades 11 and 12) across Canada and beyond, whether in public schools, Christian schools, private schools or home schooled.
The original essay must be between 1000-1200 words in length, and written in English or French.
The application form as part of the general scholarship brochure will be posted on the newspaper’s before the end of May.
Here is the stated theme/topic for the 2014-2015 edition of the Father Ted Colleton Scholarship.
There is no justice without truth, and truth is a precious commodity. Read Hans Christian Andersen’s fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes” and write a commentary on the fable as it might apply to the abortion debate in society.
