All essays are to be submitted by e-mail. The winning essays from each contest will be printed in the West Virginians for Life quarterly newspaper, Life Matters. The winner of the Senior Essay Contest will be invited to read the winning essay at the West Virginians for Life Rally scheduled for Tuesday, February 11, 2014 in the Lower Rotunda of the State Capitol.
