Multimedia Youth Contest:
Creating on the Margins/ Creando desde la Periferia
The annual Multimedia Youth Contest is organized by the U.S. bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). It is a tool for schools and parishes to engage Catholics in grades 7 through 12 in learning about the root causes of U.S. poverty and the Church’s response.
The theme this year is “A Time to Heal Racism.” Contest materials (English and Spanish) can be found at www.usccb.org/cchd. The local deadline is March 1, 2019.
For additional contest resources, support in implementing the contest in your parish/school or with questions, contact Claire Lucas, Archdiocese of
Seattle CCHD intern at firstname.lastname@example.org.
