Congratulations to our Winners!

We would love to list the winners' full names and specific locations, but due to (illegal) discrimination against creationists, we can not give that information without endangering their acceptance into higher education and future employment.

And a huge "Thank you!!" to ALL who wrote essays! We hope each of you learned fascinating things about the world around you and the universe you live in, things that will help you evaluate the anti-God messages you are, and will be, receiving throughout your life. That's the main reason we run this Contest - it's for YOU to learn a little, tiny bit of the evidence that God really IS the Creator, and God's Word is trustworthy!

Notice that our 6 winners come from 5 states, so having a live presentation event would not work. They received their certificates and prize monies by mail.

The essays linked here have been put through one or more conversion processes to remove personal information and save them in PDF format. After this, they may not look just like the originals! If you encounter weird characters, or other issues, please contact Thank you!

The 2023 Contest is OPEN UNTIL APRIL 30! There's a total of $1500 prize money to be won! ...Not to mention that there's so much information now available that demonstrates that there really IS a Creator, Who has left handprints all over His universe! Any student aged 11 to 18, as of April 30, 2021, is eligible. You do not have to belong to Midwest Creation Fellowship, nor do you have to live in the United States.
