Oakseed Ministries International Essay Contest 2013 On Poverty

Oakseed Ministries International Essay Contest 2013 On Poverty

Oakseed Ministries International is proud to announce our 8th annual international essay contest 2013, for youth on the topic: Compassion and Breaking the Cycle of Poverty. Students are invited to explore the issues facing child and family poverty and to offer innovative ideas to help these children. Submitted essays should not be a clinical assessment of child and family poverty, but a personal response to the crisis of destitute people. It is essential that your essay include elements that display your understanding of a Biblical view of life. The essay contest is part of a year long effort to raise awareness of the plight of poverty-stricken children around the world.
