Congratulations to Valentina and Jacobi, the 2020 winners of the Kayak Kids’ Illustrated History Challenge. While Valentina created a graphic novel-style and Jacobi juxtaposed archival images with a prose tale, both winners used immense creativity to highlight impactful Canadian histories.
The Soul of a Boat
Through brilliantly painted graphic novel-style panels, Valentina depicts a story of immigration from the perspective of a boat coming to Canada.
Pas même un billet de char
In his essay adorned with archival photos, Jacobi recounts the Quebec riot that took place between March 28 and April 1, 1918 in the context of the Conscription Crisis in Quebec.
