Students win Anabaptist contest awards

Three Tabor students recently received awards for their research into Anabaptism.

Sierra Sanchez, a senior from Thailand, won the $300 first place prize in the Wilmer Harms Anabaptism Contest for her work on “Article 13,” a section of the Mennonite Brethren Confession of Faith.

Lincolnville senior Timothy Vinduska’s entry, “The Pacifists and the Struggle for Perfection in World War I,” won $200 for second place.

Ricardo Benavides, a junior from Van Nuys, California, won $100 for his third-place submission, “Peace and War: A Building Tension.”

“The finalists this year gave evidence of serious scholarship and reflection regarding pacifism and peace-making in different venues,” said Peggy Goertzen, director of the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies.

Harms, longtime chair of the center’s advisory board, established the contest in an effort to encourage student research, scholarship, and creativity in Anabaptist topics. This was the fourth year for the contest.
