Spotlight22 has opportunities for students to be involved. Below are the details of some of the competitions on offer for 2022.

Students of the Diocese can show off their skills and experience to other students, parents, teachers and the world.

The competitions are designed to be run either in class or for interested students to work on their entries outside of the classroom. Prizes will be awarded to all team members of the winning team and a special prize will be won by the school. Each competition will have a number of different award categories.


One of our premier events for 2022 will be showcasing student entries to the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Making a Difference (STEM MAD) Competition. This national catholic schools competition focuses on our Catholic call to 'never see a need without doing something about it.'

Visit the STEM MAD Website to get all the details on how you and your students can get involved.
