Announcing: The National Pro-Life Neighborhood Chalk Day & Contest – Friday, May 1st

Brenna Lewis - 27 Mar 2020

During our COVID19 #SlowtheSpread home quarantine efforts, you’ve probably noticed your neighbors taking a lot more walks than usual. With most retail, restaurants, gyms, playgrounds, and other entertainment establishments closed down, simply taking a walk is one of the last things we have left to do until these quarantines lift.

However, this does not mean our pro-life mission should cease!

There’s a fun new trend Americans are participating in while many are under “Shelter in Place” orders…using the end of driveways and other publicly viewable areas to chalk messages for passersby!

So, Students for Life is launching a brand-new initiative… The National Pro-Life Neighborhood Chalk Day & Contest! And it’s happening Friday, May 1st.


Here’s How You Can Participate & WIN PRIZES…

1. Sign up now to participate, and Students for Life will send you a FREE pro-life bumper sticker!

2. Get some sidewalk chalk (stores like Target, Meijer, & Walmart sell this).

3. Think of some positive, creative, pro-life messages (or pictures) to chalk at the end of your driveway, on public sidewalks, and anywhere else people will see your messages. There are sample messages below!

4. Take a picture, post on Facebook and/or Instagram, and tag #StudentsforLife and #ProLifeChalkDay by May 1st. Students for Life will select first, second, and third place winners and ship out prizes!
