Aboriginal Arts & Stories is the largest and most recognizable creative writing competition in Canada for Aboriginal youth. The contest is open to Canadians of Aboriginal ancestry (Status, Non-Status, Inuit and M¨¦tis) between the ages of 11-29.
To enter, create a writing or art piece that explores a moment or theme in Aboriginal history or culture. A 200-400 word Artist¡¯s or Author¡¯s Statement that explains how your piece reflects or interprets the moment or theme you selected must accompany your entry. This year's deadline is March 31, 2015.
This contest is a very good opportunity for young people to launch a career in the arts, since winners receive national recognition for their work. Regardless of whether or not you place, all participants will receive a certificate of participation, which is a good CV resource.
The program is organized by Historica Canada¡ªa national charitable organization that was launched in September 2009 through the amalgamation of two existing organizations: The Historica Foundation of Canada and The Dominion Institute.
