The Representative for Children and Youth’s office held its second-annual Your Story, Your Voice Contest in celebration of National Child Day on November 20, 2016. This contest was an opportunity to raise awareness of our office and to start young Nunavummiut talking about their rights.
The theme for 2016 was “right to participate.” This year, we asked Nunavut schools to send us classroom entries of door decorations or wall murals that reflected this theme. We received entries from six classes – each showing us the creativity and originality of young Nunavummiut!
This year’s winners are:
In the spirit of honouring a child’s right to participate, classes will work with the RCY’s office to determine what each class’s prize will be.
Thanks to all who participated:
We look forward to next year!
