If you’re an Arizona youth (12-18 years old), prayerfully consider entering the Pro-Life Youth Contest hosted by Arizona Right to Life. They’re looking for a powerful logo, website, film or song that will speak to your peers about how abortion has affected your generation. Your work should be guided by the theme of “Respect, Love, Protect.” Attend a pro-life event — in-person if you can or via a web feed or social media feed — to get some ideas and testimonies and then start creating. Deadline is Jan. 31. Entry form and details.
