It is time to announce the winner of the 2010 Summit Ministries Essay Contest
on The Christian Worldview Radio Program!
The winner will be receiving a full-tuition scholarship to a two-week Summit Student Conference this summer. All other entrants will receive the Summit Lecture Series FREE when they register for a Summit Student Conference. A hearty “Well done!” to all the entrants for the thought and time you put into your essays. You can register for Summit by going to Summit.org or calling 1-866-786-6483.
Here was the topic for this year’s contest: In a video or essay, explain the key aspects of the worldview of proponents of “global warming / climate change” and how the Biblical worldview should inform the debate.
This year, we had a panel grading the essays on the following three points:
1. Was the essay topic addressed?
2. How compelling was the content of the essay or video?
3. How well was the content communicated (i.e. writing or speaking ability)?
So, to not hold you in suspense any longer, we’d like to congratulate 19-year-old Lauren Shirley of Texas on her winning essay entitled, “Environmentalism and the Christian Worldview.” Lauren will be receiving a full tuition scholarship to a Summit Ministries Student Conference this summer. You can read her essay here.
We’d also like to congratulate the “best of opposite” winner (i.e. video entrant), Laura Kouts of Oklahoma for her video. Laura will be receiving a half tuition scholarship to a Summit conference this summer. You can watch her video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYlfrMvXkYc
Others entrants meriting honorable mention are (not in any order):
Brittany Jones of Louisiana,
Hannah Victor of Pennsylvania,
Jeff Hart of New Jersey,
Jake Pederson of Wisconsin,
Martha Pool of Texas,
and Kristyn McIntyre of Maine.
All entrants are eligible to receive $50 off registration to a Summit Student Conference, and when they do register, they will receive a FREE copy of the Summit Lecture Series, which is a $95 value.
Our next Summit Essay / Video Contest is planned for early in 2011 so be sure to stay tuned to The Christian Worldview Radio Program or TheChristianWorldview.com website for updates.
