The theme for this year’s Canada Day Challenge is CANADA: STRONG AND FREE.
This is your chance to explore Canada’s history, culture, and identity and to discover what makes this country a truly special place. Exercise your artistic spirit and express your pride in Canada by highlighting the theme in your entry. And remember, the goal is to get creative, so have fun and let our great country inspire you!
Creative Tip: Canada has many symbols that are recognized here at home and around the world. Our symbols are just as diverse as Canada’s history and its citizens! The use of Canadian symbols is encouraged in your entry, like the Parliament Buildings, the Canadian flag, the Maple Leaf, and even our national animals: the beaver and the Canadian Horse! For more information on the symbols of Canada, take a look at the Symbols of Canada booklet.
