In 2015, Canada celebrates the 200th birthday of Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first Prime Minister, and the 50th anniversary of the National Flag of Canada. Drawing inspiration from these events, youth can participate in the 2015 Canada Day Challenge by submitting their creations in three exciting categories:
- Draw it!
- Snap it!
- Write it!
There will be a total of nine finalists selected, three from each category. Three finalists will also be selected as the National Winners to represent each category as part of winning posters for Celebrate Canada.
Get ready to pack your bags for an unforgettable, all-expenses-paid adventure in the Nation’s Capital Region!
This year, nine grand-prize trips for two to Ottawa will be awarded: finalists and their family members will get the chance to attend Canada Day 2015 celebrations, receive VIP access to exciting places, and meet some of Canada’s most inspiring personalities. They’ll also tour museums, galleries, and so much more!
Lights! Camera! Action!
Finalists will also have the opportunity to work with the NFB’s amazingly talented team of Education Specialists, who will help them create their very own short films about their adventures in Ottawa.
