MINNEAPOLIS, (christiansunite.com) -- Human Life Alliance (HLA) and Students for Life of America (SFLA) announce the second annual Campus Impact Award challenge which offers $1,000 in prizes to student clubs that promote pro-life activism during the months of February and March.

The Award encourages students to act upon their pro- life beliefs after the March for Life and other walks fuels their spark of enthusiasm. Tens of thousands of young people turn out for these local and national events.

"We're asking students to step up and be a catalyst for pro-life action on their campus," said HLA Deputy Director Joe Langfeld. "When young people return from these powerful events, they're inspired to stand up for life. The Impact Award helps young people show their peers that pro-life values are alive and well on campus."

Ideas for student projects include distributing pro-life literature on campus, poster campaigns, leafleting at basketball games, tabling in the student union and more. Three cash prizes of $500, $250 and $250 will be awarded to the top three clubs who succeed in producing creative and broad reaching educational efforts.

Kristan Hawkins, SFLA Executive Director, stated, "This is just the type of encouragement students need to cultivate a pro-life presence on campus. In turn, the new opportunities developed through the challenge will launch pro-life clubs to a whole new level of activism."

The 2009 Campus Impact Award winners were Purdue Students for Life (1st place), University of New Mexico Students for Life (2nd place) and the Carnegie Mellon University Respect Life Club (3rd place). Each club used unique opportunities on campus to present a dynamic pro-life message. University of New Mexico Students for Life increased their club size 70% as a result of their Campus Impact project.

Students are encouraged to contact Human Life Alliance or Students for Life of American to receive a copy of the official rules. The contest begins February 1st and runs through March 31, 2010. Contestants must document their "Campus Impact" project and submit presentation information for final judging by midnight of March 31st. YouTube videos, digital photos and emailed reports will be accepted.
