“The Eucharist commits us to the poor." ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church #1397

CCHD Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest

The CCHD Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest is a tool to help engage entire schools and parishes in awareness about poverty and our faith response.  Contest entries are due to the local Diocesan committee in March, and one winning entry will be submitted to the national contest.

The contest is an opportunity to engage youth in grades 10 through 12 in learning about:

  • Root causes of poverty
  • The Catholic Campaign for Human Development’s support for groups of empowered, low-income people working to address the causes of poverty.
  • Catholic social teaching’s call for Catholics to support such efforts through both charitable works and social justice.

Contest information and materials may be downloaded from the national CCHD’s contest website.  For information about the contest within the Diocese of Toledo, please contact Germaine Kirk at 419-244-6711, ext. 225 or gkirk@toledodiocese.org.
