All of the essays we received were inspiring and made the final decisions a difficult one. Thanks to everyone who participated.

For this year’s essay, students were asked to answer this question:

Social media plays a big role in our daily lives. We use it to keep in touch with friends and make new friends. We post pictures and videos. We use it share what we like and what we don’t like.

Explain the positives and negatives of social media as it has impacted your life. As Christians, how should we conduct ourselves on social media?


The Take Heart Scholarship was developed for you, our Y.I. Club World Changers, who are high school seniors and will soon advance to your next level of higher education. During these times of excitement, anxiousness and uncertainty, “take heart!” As Christians, we cannot anticipate that life will be perfect or familiar, but when we feel that the world has become difficult, take comfort in knowing that our God has overcome it all!

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
-John 16:33
