Intro - Essay ContestFor over 20 years, the UST-Archdiocesan Essay Contest has encouraged thousands of Catholic school students in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to:

  • Think about common concerns and questions
  • Recognize the importance of writing

This year, Principals (or their official designee) from each of the 59 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese will be able to submit essays from up to six (6) students in their school.

All participants will be invited to join His Eminence Cardinal Daniel DiNardo and University of St. Thomas President Dr. Richard Ludwick for our Awards Day Eucharistic Celebration, followed by the Awarding Ceremony.
