The 2016 Canada Day Challenge is Here! – Le Défi de la fête du Canada 2016 est lancé! The 2016 Canada Day Challenge launched last week! The Challenge will be a great opportunity for Canadian youth between 8 and 18 years of age, inviting them to express their creativity. Canadian youth are invited to start thinking about the Challenge now and how they can demonstrate pride in Canada. There are three exciting categories: DRAW IT! Draw, paint, and sketch! Youth can draw inspiration from Canada’s past and present to create a colourful poster design. SNAP IT! Youth can use their smartphones or digital cameras and submit their best photograph. That captures Canada through their eyes. WRITE IT! Youth can express their thoughts about what Canada means to them and capture Canada’s amazing spirit in writing. The original work can be a short story, a poem, or an essay. Please visit the website at http://www.challenge.pch.gc.ca for more contest details and to see the exceptional works of the 2015 winners.
