2019 Your Story, Your Voice Contest

The contest closes and entries must be received by the RCYO by 5 pm Mountain Standard Time on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

The Representative for Children and Youth’s Office (RCYO) is excited to announce the fifth annual Your Story, Your Voice contest! This is an art contest and we encourage students to work together to create a poster, wall mural, or other form of creative submission based on:

Article 42 of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
You have the right to know your rights! Adults should know about your rights and help you learn about them, too.

The RCYO is an independent advocacy office that works to ensure the Government of Nunavut (GN) supports the rights and best interests of young Nunavummiut. If you have questions about our 2019 Your Story, Your Voice contest; child rights; the work of our office; or concern for a young person and the support they are receiving from a GN department, we encourage you to contact our office by:
