The theme of the contest is “How do Catholic school communities of faith, knowledge and service produce a family fully alive?” and its goal is to share the importance of Catholic school communities through creativity.
“We are delighted to bring the creativity and energy of school children into our planning,” said Donna Farrell, executive director of the World Meeting of Families. “This will bring the World Meeting team and Catholic school system closer together as we all prepare for the celebration of the congress and papal visit in September.”
One video will be selected per school and all entries will be shared publicly on the World Meeting of Families-Philadelphia 2015 social media networks including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Voting will be open to the public and three winning entries will be determined by the number of Facebook “likes” and Twitter “favorites” received between Jan. 25 and 31.
The winning videos will also be shown during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia Sept. 22-25.
The contest is one of several planned that are designed to engage both children and adults in the 2015 World Meeting of Families’ catechesis and theme, which is “Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.”
