National Democracy Challenge 2013 – Challenge Details

National Democracy Challenge


The National Democracy Challenge 2013 invited Canadians aged 14 to 30 to Show and Tell: Democracy in Action by submitting an image, video or piece of writing highlighting what democracy in action means to them. For the first time this year, we also challenged Canadian schools to get involved by offering a prize of a 2014 Forum for Young Canadians student bursary to the school with the most National Democracy Challenge submissions.

We received many amazing submissions from young Canadians from all corners of the country and were impressed with the level of creativity, passion and artistic talent that participants delivered this year.

Many thanks to our wonderful panel of judges: the Right Honourable Michaƫlle Jean, Rick Mercer, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and George Stroumboulopoulos. With so many fantastic entries, arriving at a list of winners was no easy task, but you were up to the challenge!
