Annual Literary and Poster Contests

As one of our primary goals, fostering Remembrance is a part of everything we do. Thanks to the longstanding tradition of the Annual Literary and Poster Contests, we have been able to involve Canadian school children in helping us to promote not only the National Remembrance Day Service, but also the act of honouring our military heritage. Deadlines for entries in the Poster and Literary Contests are determined by the local Legion branches.

The deadline for Strathcona’s entries to this year’s Poster and Literary Contests is 16 November 2018. Entries are to be delivered to the Royal Canadian Legion Strathcona Branch 595, at 1940 B Bank St.  An awards ceremony will be held in January 2019. 

Ontario Command also invites students to take part in a Public Speaking Contest and a Remembrance Video Contest.

The Deadline for the Video Contest is 01 December 2018. Entries are to be emailed to Ontario Provincial Command at
