In preparation for March 21st, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the Multicultural Education Program of PEIANC is organizing its 5th Annual Anti-Racism Challenge, a creative competition for Island students.

The purpose of the Challenge is to engage youth in grades 7-12 in a creative process to express their ideas on the topic of anti-racism. Youth are encouraged to explore the meaning of anti-racism (which is not anti-bullying or anti-violence) prior to developing their submission.

Entries are accepted in the following categories: (*Please see competition rules for details.)

  • Written text  
  • Poster 
  • Video 

In each category, contestants / teams may submit no more than one entry. (Please note *All original artwork for the poster category can be picked up at PEIANC after the contest (please arrange this when you submit your poster), and copyright for all categories remains with the artist.)

Prizes

  • 1st prize: $200 for the winner, plus $200 for his or her school or youth group / organization
  • 2nd prize: $100
  • 3rd prize: $50

Prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories. (Note* If insufficient entries or quality of entries is not high enough, PEIANC reserves the right to cancel the competition or to limit it to certain categories.)
