Start writing your exciting Canadian History tale and you could be on your way to Ottawa next year. The award is open to Canadian kids between the ages of 7 and 14. Students are invited to create their own illustrated story based on any element of Canada’s past they find of interest. The award deadline is June 15, 2020.
Stories should be between 500–1200 words in length and should include 1–3 illustrations or archival photographs to accompany the story. Comic Strip formats are eligible; students should keep in mind a 5-page comic typically entails 500 words. Stories can be written in either English or French.
Stories will be evaluated by a panel of judges on the following basis:
The top two writers, one French and one English, a trip for two to Ottawa. The top twenty-five stories will be published on our website and awarded a complimentary subscription to Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids. All participants will receive a special certificate commending them on their participation.
