As one of our primary goals, fostering Remembrance is a part of everything we do. Thanks to the longstanding tradition of the Annual

Literary and Poster Contests, we have been able to involve Canadian school children in helping us to promote not only the National Remembrance Day Service, but also the act of honouring our military heritage. Deadlines for entries in the Poster and Literary Contests are determined by the local Legion branches.

The deadline for entries to this year’s Poster and Literary Contests is 15 November 2018. Entries are to be delivered to the Royal Canadian Legion Barrhaven Branch 641, at 3500 Fallowfield Rd.  An awards ceremony will be held in January 2019. The Deadline for the Video Contest is 01 December 2018. Entries are to be emailed to Ontario Provincial Command at info@on.legion.ca

The Royal Canadian Legion Zone G5 Public Speaking Contest will be held on March 2, 2019 at the Royal Canadian Legion Bells Corners Branch 593, 4026 Old Richmond Road Ottawa, ON

Registration for grades 1 to 8 is at 8 a.m. and the contest will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Registration for grades 9 to 12 is at noon and the contest runs until 5 p.m.

Ontario Command also invites students to take part in a Public Speaking Contest and a Remembrance
