When students are involved in ORTLEF Contests, the subject becomes a discussion point with their families, friends, and others who may not have given much thought to the fact that every life is precious.

We encourage you to tell kindergarten students through high school seniors about our contests. ORTLEF Contests are one way to spread the pro-life message as we work to secure everyone’s right to live.
