By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

TORONTO, September 1, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - For the past nine years The Interim newspaper and Niagara Region Right to Life have been co-sponsoring the Father Ted Colleton Scholarship program. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage young people to learn about pro-life issues, the pro-life movement, and to become actively involved in its programs.

The 2010-2011 contest is open to Grade 11 and 12 high school students not only in Canada, but also to any English-language student around the world, with prizes of $1500, $800 and $500.

Contestants must submit a typed original essay on this year's theme topic, approximately 800-1000 words in length, one letter of reference from a school staff member or community representative, and a brief self-profile outlining participation in school life/community activities and a description of their interest and/or involvement in the pro-life cause.
