MADISON -- Diocesan winners in the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest were selected recently by the diocesan CCHD Committee chaired by Trudi Jenny. There were 16 diocesan entries in the contest.

The contest engages young people in grades seven to 12 in learning about poverty in the U.S., its root causes, and faith-inspired efforts to address it, especially through the CCHD.

The CCHD is the domestic anti-poverty program of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Since 1970, CCHD has worked to encourage empowerment and participation in addressing the causes of poverty, and education and involvement of Catholics in this effort.

The diocesan winners included:

• Over-all winner which will be submitted to the national CCHD contest — “Uprooting Poverty Together: Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” a sculpture by eighth graders Isaac Bass, Matthew Milewski, and Brock Pelton from Sacred Heart School, Reedsburg.

• Best understanding of issues of poverty — The drawing “The Lonely Girl,” by Allyscha Ellefson, seventh grader at Sacred Heart School, Reedsburg.

• Most creative — “Trees of Difference,” a sculpture by eighth graders Ben Parsons, Jedd Soda, and Eric Washkovick from St. John the Baptist School in Princeton.
