Submission Guidelines


The contest is open to all students in grades 4 – 12 at Ontario’s publicly funded Catholic schools.

Students are invited to prepare a 2-minute video that shows how Catholic schools are places where young people encounter the Holy Spirit and ignite hope through the love of Christ.

The video should be uploaded to YouTube where it can be viewed and evaluated for the contest.

The unique URL (web address) created by YouTube when a video file is uploaded is to be recorded on the OCSTA short-video contest submission form.

The submission deadline is December 10, 2019.

The submission form can be downloaded here.
