EXTENDED DEADLINE! — Canada’s National History Society is proud to introduce #OurStoriesOurVoices, a new national youth program that gives students aged 9 to 18 the opportunity to explore a story that is important in their community’s past and to share the people, places, events, and things that illuminate our diverse past.
The #OurStoriesOurVoices national contest invites you to select a person, place, event, or thing in your community that other Canadians should know about. Then, share your research and analysis in a creative format of your choosing.
Lessons on historical significance and primary source evidence have helped orient the “what” of your project. Now, here’s how to figure out the “how.”
Enter a submission to the #OurStoriesOurVoices national contest.
This program has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
Discover resources and educational materials catered to educators and parents to help bring #OurStoriesOurVoices into the classroom.
Check out the rules and learn how to submit a creative response to the #OurStoriesOurVoices national contest. Use the hashtag #OurStoriesOurVoices to share your progress and stay connected. The new deadline for submissions is June 1, 2021.
