Student Contests

LifeFirst student contests provide an outlet for local students to find their voice. These contests are not academic exercises. They serve as conversation starters between students and adults, whether they are parents, teachers or pastors. We believe that these conversations influence multiple generations and equip all participants to communicate why every innocent life should be respected and protected. For an overview of all Student Contests please download and share our General Contest Flyer!

 

Contests are available for students in second grade through college. Students living in Montgomery, Grimes, Harris, Liberty, San Jacinto, Walker, Waller, Fort Bend, Austin, Brazoria or Galveston counties may enter. Please click the contest links below for more information.
