How Does Yearly Income Affect Suicide Rates in Louisiana
Katherine Winchester, 11th Grade, St. Joseph's Academy
Louisiana's High School Winner

We are all familiar with the popular phrase, "money doesn't buy happiness", which, in a literal sense, is true. However, with millions of people across the globe unable to provide for their basic needs, an unfortunate number fall victim to suicide, trying to escape the constant stress of wondering when their next meal will be. This, along with the shame and stigma attached to poverty gives a hopeless and depressive tone to the lives of the impoverished members of our society.
