Win A Week At Camp - Enter JR ACRY Essay Contest!

JOHNSTOWN, PA [National Junior ACRY] - If you’ve ever been to Camp Nazareth, chances are you can’t wait to go back. Wouldn’t it be great if you were able to go for free?!

Each year, the National Jr. ACRY holds a Camp Essay Contest that anyone across the diocese can enter. If your essay is chosen as the winner, the National Jr. ACRY will pay for one full Diocesan week of camp if you are a National Jr. ACRY member. If you are not a member of the National Jr. ACRY, half of your camping week will be paid for.

Who can enter?  -  ANYONE, whether a Jr. ACRY member or not.

What is the topic?  - Write about/reflect on last year’s camp theme:        Galatians 5:25- “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.”

How long? - The essay must be 200 words or less.

When is it due? - By Friday,  May 23, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Who do I mail it to?                                   

Tim Paproski
National Jr. ACRY President
1194 Broadbridge Ave.
Stratford, CT 06615

Please write your name, address, telephone number, and chapter number or home parish on the BACK of the essay so the board can judge fairly. A decision about the essay contest will be made at the National ACRY Bowling Tournament. The winner will be notified at the Bowling Tournament, or shortly after if they are not present.

We look forward to receiving your essays, seeing you at the Bowling Tournament, AND seeing you at that beautiful place in among the mountains this summer!
