Canada Day Challenge

The 2016 Canada Day Challenge winners and finalists have been announced! You can see their winning artwork and what inspired them in our Winners Gallery. Thank you to all young Canadians who participated.


What makes you proud to be Canadian?

Every year, we ask youth from 8 to 18 years old across Canada to tell us what makes them proud to be Canadian by submitting their best, most dynamic drawings, photos or pieces of creative writing.

For the 2016 Canada Day Challenge, the winners will receive great prizes, including all-expenses paid trip for two to Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day on Parliament Hill: go backstage, meet some of Canada’s most inspiring people, visit the Sir Wilfrid Laurier National Historic Site, tour museums, galleries, the iconic Parliament Buildings and be part of a special summer exhibit at the Canadian Museum of History.

Winners will also receive the opportunity to work with the amazingly talented team of education specialists from the National Film Board of Canada to create their very own short films about their adventures in Ottawa.
