The tenth annual pro-life t-shirt week sponsored by America Life League is just around the corner and the organization says it expects thousands of pro-life college, high school and junior high students to participate.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week begins on Tuesday, April 24 and goes through Monday, April 30.  Prizes include national exposure of the winning works.

“More and more youth are returning to family tradition, responsibility, and the teachings of their faith.  This event gives young pro-lifers and their families a voice in their own communities,” said Paul Rondeau, executive director at ALL. “Planned Parenthood would have us believe that every young person is uncontrollably sexual and wants access to abortion at the drop of a hat.  In fact, quite the opposite is true: America is becoming more pro-life because of these young people.”

This year’s events include a Photo Scavenger Hunt, Video Challenge, Essay Competition, and a Poster Design Contest.  The event is open to the public and all homeschoolers.  In addition, over 1,000 schools and faculty have been invited to have their students to participate.

Winners will receive prizes and national exposure for their work.  For example, the winner of the pro-life video contest will be hosted for three days of professional workshops by Movie to Movement in Santa Monica.

Judges and sponsors include Jill Stanek, LIFESocal, Movie to Movement, ProLifeUnity.com, Pro Life Youth Congress, Radiance Foundation, RealCatholicTV.com, Rock for Life,  Walk for Life West Coast, Brian Gale, author of Fatherless, Matt Abbott of Renew America and Teen Defenders.
