Thanks so much for making this competition possible. It has been a childhood dream come true to have a story published. 

If you are a young person with a story of faith, won’t you consider sending in an entry next year? We accept submissions from April to July and there is no entry fee for writers aged 17 and under, who submit a story in the Lutheran Education Young Stories of Life category.
