2024 Art Contest

The Right to Life of Southwest Indiana Art Contest strives to promote the ability of high school students in grades 9-12 to share their pro-life views with others.  Eligible students will create an original piece of pro-life art guided by the theme “LIFE, The Greatest Gift,” emphasizing the pro-life movement’s support of both mother and baby.  Artwork will be displayed at the 2024 Annual Banquet.
