These Kids Are Winners!

Some pretty savvy students in Canada recently won a creative contest called the Coast-to-Coast Classroom Contest. We really wanted to share their amazing artwork with you!

Creative Contest

Recently, Grade 5 to 8 students across Canada were asked to create one-of-a-kind banner designs for the Raise Your Voices! National Student Banner Contest (for more information, visit NCC's banner contest site at The kids submitted all kinds of cool designs that represent issues and topics like the Olympic Games and other sports; war, peace and friendship; Canadian history and traditions; multiculturalism; and nature and the environment.

The seven winning banners will be professionally produced and displayed in Ottawa, which is Canada’s capital city. The winners are (drum roll please!):

  • Grade 6 students Tessa Victoria Brenan and Breanne Marie Collins from Viscount Alexander School in Manitoba for their banner Peace Out!
  • Grade 5 students Emily Bailey and Claire McEvoy from St. Maria Goretti School in Alberta for their banner Scenes of Canada!
