Juniors and seniors at Lafayette are eligible to compete for the Samuel Robinson Award worth up to $1000.

There are only two requirements: A) to recite the answers to the Westminster Shorter Catechism to Gary Miller, college chaplain, and B) to write a 2000-word essay on an assigned topic. This year’s topic is whether a war against Iraq is a “just war.”

The catechism consists of 107 questions. Essays are graded and the awards will range from $700 to $1000 depending on the grades.

This award was established by Samuel Robinson, a believer in the value of memorization of catechisms.

Entrants do not have to be a member of the Presbyterian Church to win the award. The application deadline is April 1, 2003.

For more information and a copy of the catechism, contact the chaplain’s office, ext. 5320.
