World Meeting of Families: Video Contest for Catholic School Students

2015-01-22

Now that the Pope announced that he is indeed planning on going to Philadelphia in September for the World Meeting of Families, there's a lot of enthusiasm and high expectations about the trip. 

Now, organizers are hoping to extend that energy to students. Here's how: 

World Meeting of Families is launching a video contest for students. The goal is to answer one simple question: How do Catholic school communities of faith, knowledge and service, strengthen families? 

The video should be no more than 60 seconds long. Since teenagers are all about social media, the videos can be uploaded to Youtube and will then be voted on through social media. The top five videos will be displayed on the World Meeting of Families website. The top three videos could even be played during the big event in Philadelphia.

The rules are simple: Only one video per school and it must be submitted by a school representative. 

The winners will be announced at the end of January.  For more information check out the World Meeting of Families website
