Sign Up for the Roots Sunday Student Essay Contest

The ROOTS Sunday Essay Contest invites all students who attend a Roots Sunday congregation to submit an essay on the topic, “Why my roots are important to me.” A “Roots Sunday” essay will reference an older member of the contestants’ family. The contest challenges contestants to research their family’s roots, and to discover and write about how their history has shaped their own life today.
