Canadian Aboriginal Writing & Arts Challenge
The Canadian Aboriginal Writing & Arts Challenge is a national storytelling initiative to educate Canadians about the defining moments in history that have shaped this country and its Aboriginal people. We challenge youth (ages 14-18 and 19-29) of Aboriginal descent (Status, Non-Status, Inuit and Métis) to write a short creative piece or create a piece of two-dimensional artwork about a moment in Aboriginal history; participants can showcase their talent, develop their creativity and win up to $2,000!
DEADLINE: March 31, 2011
The winner of the 2010 Writing Challenge was Trevor Jang of Moricetown. Read his entry here: Trevor Jang – Highway of Tears
