In addition to the individual awards to winning students, LifeFirst will supply a gift card to classroom teacher/adult group leaders if three or more students in a class/group participate in one of our contests.  The gift cards are to host a classroom party at the conclusion of the contest.  Through the classroom parties even students that did not participate directly in the contest can be drawn into the discussion of the value of life.
