On April 23rd, Students for Life announced that it is “launching a brand-new initiative: The National Pro-Life Neighborhood Chalk Day & Contest!” In an email sent to Live Action News, Students for Life noted that “there’s a fun new trend Americans are participating in while many are under ‘Shelter in Place’ orders… using the end of driveways and other publicly viewable areas to chalk messages for passersby!” On Friday, May 1st, 2020, individuals are invited to chalk a pro-life message on their sidewalk, driveway, etc., take a picture, upload it to Facebook and/or Instagram, and tag #StudentsforLife and #ProLifeChalkDay.
Those with a competitive spirit are further encouraged to enter the Students for Life contest to win one of several prizes. Registration for the contest is here, and three prizes will be awarded. According to the website, first prize will include: the winner’s choice of any of the pro-life t-shirts shown here, plus a signed copy of former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson’s book “Unplanned,” as well as two free tickets to the 2021 National Pro-Life Summit (formerly known as the Students for Life of America National Conference, information about the 2020 summit is here). The second prize winner will also receive their choice of a pro-life t-shirt, as well as an assortment of pro-life stickers of their choice. Third place includes the winner’s choice of a pro-life tee.
All three winners will have their chalk art featured on Students for Life’s digital media accounts, which include Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. What’s more, everyone who enters the contest will receive a free pro-life bumper sticker just for registering. Winners will be announced on May 2nd at 4pm.
Any questions about the national pro-life chalk day or contest can be directed to the Students for Life leader for your state, reachable at (yourstate)@studentsforlife.org, or to the national team at [email protected].
