At the 2004 Convention in Bayonne, NJ, the delegation decided to expand the contest to a free write. Instead of giving you one set topic to write on, you can choose from any of the 4 themes below:

Camp Nazareth


The Church

The Jr. ACRY

In 200 words or less, please write an essay pertaining to any one of these themes.

Place your name, address, telephone number, and chapter number on the BACK of your essay. This is so the Jr. Board doesn't know whose essay they are reading!
