TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2016 – The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) congratulates the winners of this year’s Youth Video Challenge, a national contest encouraging young Canadians up to 18 years old to creatively express their understanding of Canadian values and identity.
“The Youth Video Challenge is an opportunity to shine the spotlight on young Canadians,” said Anita Bromberg, Executive Director, CRRF. “The entries we received were creative and inspiring, and at the same time challenging. We posed the question of what Canadian identity, belonging and multiculturalism means to young Canadians, and they answered our call.”
The CRRF launched the Youth Video Challenge as part the Our Canada Project in 2015. Our Canada is a three-year initiative to heighten awareness, understanding and respect for Canadian values and traditions.
“As we head into the 150th celebration of Canada, these winning entries remind us of the spirit, passion, and potential of the next generation of young Canadians to make and keep Canada an inclusive and harmonious place for all peoples,” said Bromberg.
The CRRF thanks and congratulates all participants for their submissions and enthusiasm in this initiative.
2016 Youth Video Challenge Winners:
