3rd Annual Catholic Schools Week Photo Contest
In honor of Catholic Schools Week 2015, "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service," Walsh University invites high school students from across the country to take a moment and snap a photo that best captures what Catholic education means to them. Students are then asked to submit their photos by completing the form on our full website or via email. A panel of judges will then select the photo that best embraces the spirit of the Catholic Schools Week theme. The winning photo will be featured in next year's celebration of Catholic Schools Week.
The winning photographer will receive a $500 grand prize. Two runners-up will each receive a $250 prize. In addition, the school with the winning photograph will receive a $500 grant for programming at the school.
The 2015 contest is now closed.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo.
