Celebrate your future!
Youth are invited to draw a picture, take a photo, or write a short story, a poem or an essay. They can decide which category works best for them, or they can also submit entries in each of the three categories. Each entry must be submitted separately.
We are looking for entries that celebrate Canada’s culture and identity, illustrate young Canadians’ vision of the future, and reflects their exploration and participation in their community.
What will you contribute to the future? What part will you play to lead the world?
To submit an entry, participants must be aged 8 to 18 years old. Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada or legally allowed residents in the country at the time of the Challenge are eligible.
The Challenge is not open to an employee or member of the immediate family of an employee or persons living under the same roof as an employee of Canadian Heritage. Entries must comply with these official rules.
The 2017 Canada Day Challenge will start accepting entries on January 3, 2017 and will close on March 31, 2017.
