Each year, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops offers a Creating on the Margins contest to help schools and parishes engage youth in learning about the root causes of poverty and the Church's response. Youth in grades 7-12 learn about poverty in the U.S., its causes, Catholic social teaching, and the work of Catholic groups to address poverty. Youth will then work to educate others through creative work of any medium (e.g. video, song, painting, drama, poetry, etc.). Dioceses judge entries locally and then send top entries to the national contest by March 31. The grand prize winner receives $500 plus a matching grant for a CCHD funded anti-poverty organization and a trip to a national conference. Second and third place prizes may also be awarded. The Creating on the Margins contest is sponsored by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the domestic, anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic bishops.
