OJEN Grade 5 Poster Challenge

The OJEN Grade 5 Poster Challenge is a great opportunity for grade five students to learn and demonstrate an understanding of the rights of Canadians. Teachers can use the challenge to educate students about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and meet the Grade 5 Ontario curriculum expectations - People and Environments:  The Role of Government and Responsible Citizenship

Students create posters that express what they value about Canadian democracy and the Charter. All students will receive a certificate for participating. Selected regional posters will be hung in a local courthouse or be otherwise displayed as part of OJEN's Art in the Courts Program.
