"This I Believe" Essay Contest

2018 marks the first year where WBAA, partnered with the Rotary Club of Lafayette, will ask high school seniors to share what they believe.

This I Believe is WBAA's first essay program for West Central Indiana (Lafayette area) high school seniors. An expression of where their minds are as they are about to enter the adult world.


This I Believe was started by journalist Edward R. Murrow in 1951 to allow anyone able to distill the guiding principles by which they lived.

WBAA will air the winner's essays in their authors’ voices for two weeks in early March (during the: 7am hour, 1pm hour, & the 5pm hour). The audio may also be streamed at WBAA.org.

More details to come in the upcoming weeks.
