The archdiocese of Washington's video contest for kids turned out to be quite a hit. The competition asked for original short films (no longer than two minutes) that demonstrate "your community's enthusiasm for the Holy Father's visit...or show how you are uniquely preparing for his arrival." The archdiocese received almost 50 entries.
Winners -- we're assured that they will be judged on creativity, not polish -- will be announced Thursday. Each winners' group gets 15 tickets to the papal Mass at Nationals Park, and their videos will be shown as part of the program held before the Mass gets underway. Since people will start arriving at 6 a.m. for the 10 a.m. Mass, there will be plenty of viewing time.
