Poster Challenge 2018-2019


The Poster Challenge invites grade 5 students to create posters that tell us what they value about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. At a courthouse near you, staff will choose their favourite posters to send to the OJEN head office, where we will select one that will hang in each regional courthouse for the coming year.

When you register your class for the Poster Challenge, you will receive a downloadable lesson plan. This resource will help you introduce or revisit the Charter in your classroom. The Poster Challenge meets Grade 5 Ontario curriculum expectations in Social Studies in a fun and effective way.

Registration is now closed

The deadline for poster submission is Friday December 14th, 2018. 

Registered teachers should all have now received information from OJEN about where to send or drop off class posters in their community.


For all posters to be eligible for entry in to the Poster Challenge, a completed parental consent form should be attached with glue or tape (but not staples) on the back of EACH poster.

Poster Challenge 2018-2019 – Parental Consent Form 

We aim to create the clearest print of each selected finalist poster for framing and ask that all posters be packaged without any folding, and without staples. We suggest using envelopes or other packaging that is large enough to fit the full size of the posters or to use mailing tubes.

Again, please use glue or tape to attach parental consent forms to the back of the posters, NO STAPLES.

Please let us know if you are having any issues getting your posters to your assigned Courthouse.

If you have any questions, please contact Thomas Gallezot via email ( or phone (416-761-9963 ext 230).
