In today’s fast-paced world, it can be easy to take our way of life for granted and forget what so many men and women sacrificed for our freedoms. Remembrance initiatives remind us to take time to honour those who have dedicated their lives to serve our nation.
Fostering Remembrance is a part of everything we do. Through The Royal Canadian Legion's longstanding Annual Poster and Literary Contests, Canadian school children honour Canada’s Veterans through creative art and writing and help perpetuate Remembrance.
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. Deadlines for the 2020 Poster and Literary Contests are due Fri., November 6, 2020. Please contact the St. George Legion Branch at the beginning of each school year for details.
