Every year, Catholic high schools across the Archdiocese of St. Louis are invited to participate in the Annual Catholic Appeal High School Video Contest. The schools are invited to create a video that promotes the Annual Catholic Appeal. Three finalists are chosen by the Appeal Council from all of the entries, and their videos are shown at the Annual Catholic Appeal Kickoff Dinner to pastors and parish volunteers from across the archdiocese. All attendees at the dinner vote for their favorite video.

The winner of the contest receives a grant of $5,000 for their school. The other two finalists receive Honorable Mention awards of $2,500. All archdiocesan, parochial, and private Catholic high schools are invited to participate.


The winner of the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal High School Video Contest is Trinity Catholic High School!
