CIPA conducts Here is Canada contest
The Collectivité ingénieuse de la Péninsule acadienne of Paquetville, NB has begun a contest promotion called "Here is Canada: The Road to 2017." The national promotion encourages people between the ages of 19 and 25 to submit videos describing what it means to be a young adult in Canada. Entrants will be asked to examine the impact of historical milestones in forming the Canada of today. The videos will be posted online at <http://www.hereiscanada.ca>. The grand prize winner, as selected by a jury, will receive $5,000. Nine other finalists will receive prizes between $500 and $1,000
"The contest is designed to showcase the creativity of young Canadians and to drive them to explore the rich heritage of their country," said project manager Vikie Thériault. "We hope that this contest inspires youth to become more aware about what it means to be Canadian and how our history has shaped the country we live in today."
The contest, which will run until Feb. 19, 2014, is being funded by the Youth Take Charge program at Canadian Heritage. CIPA is a non-profit corporation that is part of Industry Canada's Smart Communities project, which works to foster socio-economic development in rural areas.
