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

year’s Poster and Literary
