Creative Minds Youth Contest 2018

Dear Educators and Students,

IDI GTA is pleased to launch its Creative Minds Youth Contest in York Region in partnership with the York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB). This year’s theme is “Empathy: Walking in Another’s Shoes”. The organizers invite high school students attending the YCDSB schools to participate in the contest. Submissions will be accepted in three categories: art, essay and short video. The contest finalists will be recognized at an awards ceremony on April 26th, 2018.

The winning entries (1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category) from York Region will also have an opportunity to participate in Creative Minds Youth Contest GTA which will be held in the fall of 2018.

Creative Minds Youth Contest aims to engage students, intellectually and artistically, in a wide range of social, cultural and environmental topics and provide them with a unique opportunity to express their ideas through their creative pieces. It aims to make a positive impact in preparing youth to be empathetic and responsible citizens of their communities and the globe.
