We hope this will be the last time the awards must be a virtual experience. Next spring, we shall gather at the fabulous Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in Manhattan for our first-ever televised Archies awards program, red carpet and all! We wish everyone a safe, healthy and fun summer. We will be in touch in the fall with next year’s theme and more details about the Arch Media Awards for 2023!

The 2021 Arch Media Awards Show

Faced with an ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the 2021 Arch Media Awards asked students to creatively tackle the question: “How has your school responded to COVID-19 as a community of faith?” Participating groups reflected on their Catholic school experience during this time, remembering the support of their principal and teachers.

Winning videos illustrated how their school community responded to COVID-19 by:

  • Conducting daily prayer
  • Organizing service projects
  • Celebrating first Friday Masses
  • Helping community members affected by the virus
  • Dealing with the loss of family members or friends
  • Maintaining or modifying traditions

The 2020 Arch Media Awards Show

Nearly 200 students from more than 30 schools participated in the first annual Arch Media Awards. This multimedia journalism program challenges students and their moderators to produce 60-90 second packages that tell a story just as it is done by reporters and editors around the world. The theme assigned was “What Makes My School Catholic.” While the COVID-19 crisis prevented the awards from being held at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, this video, featuring Msgr. James Vlaun from the Catholic Faith Network, Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Michael J. Deegan and celebrity guest, CBS2 Chief Meteorologist Lonnie Quinn is a wonderful salute to the winning submissions and all those who made the first Archies a roaring success.
