Kayak Contest

Check out the inside back cover of each issue of Kayak to discover a built-in activity and contest for your students. You can use this prompt to have your students reflect on the theme of the issue and consolidate their learning. Designed with the historical thinking concepts in mind, each prompt will task your students to develop a written and/or creative response.

Students can submit their work for any contest at any time to Canada’s History for a chance to win a free one-year subscription to Kayak.

Canada’s History will review the collective submissions to all of the contest prompts on a quarterly basis. One overall winner will be determined per quarter, based on all the entries submitted during that quarter. The quarterly cut-off points are: March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31.
