The Ontario Catholic School Trustees' Association (OCSTA) is inviting students to develop and contribute a video for Catholic Education Week (CEW).
Each year our Catholic Student Trustees play a leadership role in the organization of Catholic Education Week (CEW) across Ontario. They are asking students to think about this year's CEW theme, “Walking Forward Together,” and answer one of the following questions in their video clip:
- What does your Catholic faith mean to you?
- What does Catholic education mean to you?
- How do you follow in the footsteps of Christ in your daily life?
The video submissions deadline has been extended to Monday, March 6, 2017.
The video clip of about 15-30 words will need to be uploaded to a YouTube account. Students are asked to provide video clips that are filmed horizontally with high resolution (such as 1080p HD).
Recognizing the inclusiveness of Catholic education, students are invited to send their video responses in French, English, any other international language, sign language or any Indigenous languages. For those sending their video clip in any language other than English, please add a subtitle in English that states your message and the language you are speaking.
Once you have done so, please send the URL address to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, March 6, 2017.
Students are asked to submit videos without their school or board names/logos.
These video clips will be placed on the OCSTA website when complete and schools and boards will be able to download them for their Catholic Education Mass in May 2017.
This is an exciting way for our Catholic youth to participate in a provincial project and proudly declare the importance of Catholic education.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at OCSTA if you have any further questions.
