We have some exciting things coming up for students and young adults!
video contest for people 15 – 25 (deal directly with National Right to Life)
Dr Mildred F Jefferson Oratory Contest. High school juniors and seniors (or the equivalent homeschooling levels) may win a chance to represent Massachusetts in Washington, DC! The first-place winner will receive a trip, including parent or chaperon, to the National Right to Life Convention, July 7 – 9. Besides competing, the student and parent will hear the wonderful speakers at the Convention and meet active students from around the country. The Massachusetts winner also will give winning speech at the Assembly for Life, Jan 22,2017 in Faneuil Hall.
Please note that the Massachusetts contest is held every other year, so juniors should be sure to participate this year. The finals will be held during the MCFL Convention on April 2, 2016 at Assumption College in Worcester. Contest participants will be our guests for the Convention and lunch. Anyone considering entering should check the rules, http://www.nrlc.org/students/

Student Lobby Days. Open to all ages, but most appropriate for high school students, the day includes a presentation of MCFL legislation pending at the State House, an overview of the legislative process by pro-life legislators, a tour of the State House, free lunch, and lobby visits to legislators who represent visiting students. Group size is best 15 -25 so we suggest members of a U S History or biology class or members of a pro-life or other club.
Please encourage your teacher or club advisor to arrange for your day. Contact Eva Murphy at emurphy@masscitizensforlife.
Looking forward to seeing you!
