The CBC and sister French RADIO-CANADA are holding an essay contest for high school students on "what it might mean to be a Canadian in 2017." The contest, held with the INSTITUTE FOR CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP and the CITIZENSHIP COMMISSION, coincides with CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP WEEK. Among the judges is CBC "SOUNDS LIKE CANADA" host SHELAGH ROGERS.
"Citizenship values are at the heart of what it means to be a Canadian," said judge and co-chair of the ICC the Right Hon. ADRIENNE CLARKSON. "How we engage with our neighbours, both here and around the world, will be shaped by the dreams Canadian youth have about our nation's future."
