Children of Warriors Essay Contest

Candlelight Christian Fellowship is starting a new program here in Kootenai County and Shoshone County called Children of Warriors.

The mission of Children of Warriors is to provide enrichment opportunities to children ages 1-18—along with their families—by discovery, assessment, and supply.

Our Vision 

Our vision is to develop resources for the support of children and their families including but not limited to spiritual enrichment, education and character development, summer camps, sporting activities, enriching entertainment, medical/dental/vision assistance, housing assistance, food, clothing, or necessary hygiene supplies, etc.

First Local Activity

The first local activity set for this year is an “Essay Contest” (video or written). 

A 1- to 2-minute video or 1- to 2-page written submission must be developed by a young person 18 years of age or under nominating a “warrior” for recognition.

We are looking for local persons from Kootenai and/or Shoshone Counties who exemplify resilience and strength in character, parenting, and/or guardianship amidst difficult circumstances. A “warrior” is that person who, through facing trial, has demonstrated heroic action and perseverance. 

The “essay” should tell the story and background of the “warrior” and child/children. 

Submission Guidelines

  • Video and/or written essay submissions may be uploaded to www.childrenofwarriors.org.

  • Submissions may be received from residents of Shoshone County and Kootenai County, beginning April 18th and no later than June 14, 2021.

  • Video awards will be given at the “Kids and Rigs” event located at the Silver Lake Mall in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on July 3, 2021, at noon.

Prizes Included for the Child of a Warrior

There will be two “Essay Contest” grand prize winners in Shoshone County and two grand prize winners in Kootenai County, making a total of 4 winners between both counties:

  1. An all-inclusive FREE trip for two (one adult and one child) to the Noah’s Ark museum in Kentucky (up to $5,000.00 value).

  2. An all-inclusive FREE trip for two (one adult and one child) for an upper rim and rafting trip at the Grand Canyon (up to $5,000.00 value).

The winning child’s video will be broadcast on the Children of Warriors website (www.childrenofwarriors.org), YouTube channel, and the Candlelight website.  Written essays will be posted.

Union Gospel Mission

From its inception in 1951, Union Gospel Mission’s purpose has been to break – not perpetuate – the cycle of homelessness.

Believing each individual is created in the image of God, they see in each person the potential to live a meaningful life, something much better than mere survival on the street – getting a meal here, a coat and blanket there, sleeping in a doorway, constantly in danger from the elements and those who wish to do them harm.

UGM is all about change.

If you need more information, check out their website at https://www.uniongospelmission.org/ or give them a call at Phone: 509.535.8510. Their office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday

Veterans Crisis Line

Confidential help for Veterans and families

If you are a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, connect with caring, qualified responders for confidential help. Many of them are Veterans themselves.

They are there anytime, day or night – 24/7

 

The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act, signed into law in 2020, authorized 988 as the new three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. All telephone service providers in the U.S. must activate the number no later than July 2022; however, many providers will choose to implement the service sooner.

Once a Veteran's telephone service provider makes 988 available, Veterans can use this new option by dialing 988 and pressing 1 to contact the Veterans Crisis Line.
