A Brief History of the CTR Ring
By Brandon Young
The LDS religion has used the CTR ring as a symbol of faith for over 45 years. The letters, meaning Choose The Right, put on a green shield have a strong history and a meaning that goes much deeper than just a symbol for many of its 13 million members. Ever since the church started using “CTR” both on rings and in teaching manuals, it has grown to become a fashion statement and outward expression for those that bear the symbolic logo.
In 1970, Gordon B. Hinckley who was an apostle of the church at the time, officially announced the new “CTR” curriculum in a church-wide conference. It was to be implemented as a part of the doctrine being taught to children ages 6 and 7. As part of the new program, each child of the church was given one of the new CTR rings, taught its symbolic meaning, and also taught how it can help them make the right decisions in life. Since then, the saying “Choose the Right” and its concepts have been taught to all the LDS primary aged children of the church.
