The Vinny Prize

The Office of Mission and Values (OMV) is sponsoring a university-wide student competition to create new, engaging and innovative content in a wide variety of social media that highlights the mission and values of Saint Vincent de Paul (1581-1660) and Saint Louise de Marillac (1591-1660).

OMV fulfills its mission to promote a living interest in Vincentian heritage through the following:
  • by acquiring, digitizing, and making available the archival resources necessary for scholars and researchers to contribute to Vincentian Studies,
  • by publishing scholarly works through the Vincentian Heritage Journal and Monographs
  • by marketing its resources to a worldwide audience
  • by creating content using social media to make the Vincentian Heritage relevant and accessible to contemporary audiences.

As part of OMVs growing focus on content marketing as a strategy to promote a living interest in Vincentian heritage, OMV is sponsoring a university-wide student competition to create new, engaging content that highlights the life, mission, and values of Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac and the Vincentian tradition.
