The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the domestic anti-poverty initiative of the U.S. bishops, is sponsoring the Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest, for youth in grades seven to 12. The contest aims to teach youth about poverty, its causes, and the church’s response, then create art to teach others what they have learned. The 2011-2012 contest theme is Put Faith in Action! Uproot Poverty Together. Contest packets for young artists, educators at Catholic schools and parishes, youth ministers, and diocesan staff are available at www.usccb.org/artcontest. The national grand prize winner will be honored at the annual conference sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.
