"Faith has always been an important part of my life. I have been blessed to be a part of a strong Christian family that has shown me that being a Christian does not just mean going to church on Sundays. I have gone to youth camps, provided childcare for Bible studies, and I currently teach a Sunday School class of the most fabulous group of 3rd and 4th grade girls ever. I love telling others about God and how He has changed my life, and I hope that I will be a light for God all my life."
Maybe you go on urban missions, sit with a sangha, lead youth groups at your mosque, or spend summers on a kibbutz. Whatever your beliefs, involvement in a youth group, mission, or retreat can show colleges that you have the passion, commitment, and depth of character to make your mark. The Discus Awards recognize high school students active in leadership in church, synagogues, or any house of worship.
