Winners: The 1972 New Era Contest

Print Share

    Any publication to be read and evaluated by others is a challenge but no publication could be more challenging than one for youth—especially youth in the Church. Youth with talent and testimony, insight and inspiration, relevancy and righteousness. To produce a good publication we naturally go to youth for inspiration. The First Annual New Era Writing, Art, and Photography Contest confirmed the New Era’s faith and confidence in its readers.

    Many of the winning entries are included in the pages of this issue. Others will appear in future numbers of the New Era.

    Watch for the announcement of the Second Annual New Era Writing, Art, and Photography Contest coming soon.

    Proudly we present the winners of that contest.
