The theme this year is Life in the Hereafter. The elementary category topic for the EPC essay contest is Al Akhirah: What does the Hereafter mean to me? The Middle Category Topic: Al Akhirah: How should I get ready for it through my everyday activity? And the High School Category Topic: The Life Hereafter: For a purposeful life herein.

Participants are urged to register online at A fee of $15 per child is required. Essays, posters, snapshots or multimedia should be emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
