May 5, 2011. Colfax, CA. Recently, the archdiocese of New York teamed up with the dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Center to create a grassroots marketing campaign in the form of a YouTube video contest (see promoting the sacrament of confession. Films will be judged based upon the following criteria: (a) orthodoxy, (b) ratings the film receives on YouTube between the posting date and 12:00 AM on May 7, 2011; and (c) overall artistic quality.

With the guidance of one of the teachers, the apostolic boys at Colfax submitted several videos promoting confession to the i-Confess contest as part of the competition. The videos with the most VIEWS and THUMBS-UPs will win and the deadline for promotion is May 7th, 2011. So far, the video “Be Reconciled to God” is in second place out of a total of 161 videos with 15,595 views, not too far away from the first-place video. Your extra views and “likes” could make it the winner.

The first-place prize for the competition is worth $25,000 toward an educational scholarship. A Catholic school or parish of the winner’s choice will also receive a matching prize of $25,000. The second place prize is worth $10,000 with a matching prize of $10,000 for a Catholic school or parish, and there are several third prizes worth $1000.
