John Horsch Mennonite History Essay Contest

All papers should treat a subject or theme related to Anabaptist or Mennonite history. This may include congregational and institutional histories, biographies, literature, and theological, cultural and social movements among Mennonites and related groups. It is expected that the papers will do more than summarize existing written materials on the subject, and that a variety of sources will be used in the essay.
Papers must be typed with the following information on the last page of the essay: writer’s name, mailing address, e-mail address, school, and class in which the paper is entered.
All papers are archived; they will not be returned.
Deadline: June 15, 2003.
