Intercultural Dialogue Institute Edmonton in collaboration with Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) and Edmonton Catholic School Board (ECSD) announces its 1st Annual Art, Essay & Short Movie Contest, for secondary school students affiliated with the school boards. This year’s theme is “Art of Living Together” and submissions will be accepted in three categories: art, essay and short video.
Contest aims to engage students in the contest theme and give them a unique opportunity to express their ideas through the creation of essays, posters and short videos. It is expected to make a positive impact in preparing youth to be empathetic and responsible citizens of their communities and the globe.
The contest winners and finalists will be recognized and awarded at the awards dinner, which will be held on Nov (TBA), 2016 at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald. Top ten students in each category will attend the dinner along with their teachers and parents/guardians. Prominent leaders and distinguished guests of Edmonton will be invited to the dinner to honour the winners and finalists. The event will also feature a distinguished keynote speaker (TBA). Top 10 artworks and essays will be exhibited during the dinner.
