Contest Requirements and Policies:

Age Requirements:
When Pope John Paul II brought World Youth Day to life, he invited all—Catholics and non-Catholics—focusing on the young church.


In the same spirit, the Goodness Reigns: Share the Story contest offers awards for both teens and young adults, as well as individuals, ministries and dioceses interested in engaging the emerging church. Winners who are minors (those not yet 18 or who are still in high school) must be accompanied by a legal or designated guardian.

All contest winners and guests traveling with Goodness Reigns to WYD must agree to a Code of Conduct.


The winning high school youth group in the “High School Youth Group Award” category must include at least three adults in its group of 10 traveling to WYD.
