State Federations

State Essay Contest

Because of the educational changes taking place because of the Covid-19 virus the Council of Federation Presidents have extended the deadline for submitting entries in the essay contest state competitions. The new deadline is May 1, 2020. If you have questions regarding the essay contest in your state please contact the Federation President or Regional Director for your state found on this page.

If you do not see your state or you discover your state is not running the contest this year please contact Rev. Jeffrey Duncan ( ), LFL Mission & Ministry Director for information on how to enter the non-federation contest that covers the rest of the country.

Thank you for your participate!
