Remembrance Day Literacy and Poster Contest

Open to all students !

The Legion encourages schools to have their students take part in the longstanding tradition of the Annual Poster and Literary Contests. Canadian school children participate by submitting art and poetry that convey their own unique ideas of Remembrance. 

Each November 11th we take a few moments out to reflect upon the sacrifices made by soldiers around the world in past and present conflicts. We hope that, through the use of material provided by the Royal Canadian Legion and the Department of Veterans Affairs, schools can help young Canadian citizens to once again reflect upon the incredible price paid for the freedom which we enjoy. The Royal Canadian Legion appreciates your help in getting today’s youth to take a few moments out of their day and think about the freedom and security that we have and those that fought to ensure it.

Even if your child isn't participating through their school, they can still particiapte in the Literacy and Poster contest. You can access the contest brochure and application forms here  h ttp://www.legion.ca/communities-youth/youth-education/remembrance-contests

All entries must be turned into the branch by November 1st, 2017. It is very important that each entry have the completed entry form along with their submission. Both the student and parent must sign consent.


We appreciate the efforts that many schools make to help students understand what Remembrance Day is all about. Whether it be through classroom activities or school assemblies, the schools have worked hard to help our organization educate the young people of our city. Another great local resource is the many veterans that we have in our city. Often these veterans are willing to come and be a part of classroom or assembly activities if invited. If you have access to any of these veterans, we encourage you to contact them.

Our Branch run solely on volunteers. The Royal Canadian Legion is a not for profit organization funded by membership fees, donations and fundraising.
