The Value of Competition

When everyone is a winner, the valuable lessons gained from healthy competition can be lost. While it is good to help everyone feel like a success, and a valued member of society, our school, or our church, competition can be a good thing, too. It can shape you into a confident, resilient person who remembers where worth actually comes from - God’s love for us. Competition is everywhere, including school, sports and the professional world. We have to compete in order to get into college or land a great job. If everyone's a winner all the time, we don’t have a chance to gain experience in what it’s like to lose gracefully, grow from experiences and move on with self-esteem intact. In this article, we explore 5 important values of competition, and how they actually serve to build character more than participation trophies.

We wanted to find out how our teachers were experiencing the changes in their own classrooms, so we sat down with Alicia Kidston (Dean of Women, English Teacher), Hannah Swafford (Social Studies Teacher), and David Black (Teacher, Director of Lights Academy). Each gave us a glimpse into the changes they’ve made to contribute to the success of their students.

In times of turmoil, it can be hard to remain focused. But, the Lord reminds us in Psalm 91:14-15 that as long as we remain focused on Him, he will always have our backs. At LuHi, we are grateful to have our students back on campus, and we want everyone to be successful in this transition back to our normal routines. It can always be difficult to return to a school schedule after summer break, but this year may be particularly challenging for many families as they have been adjusting to a new routine at home as well.
