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 - Canada and World Connections - Aspects of Government in Canada.
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.
- The contest is open to all English and French Grade 5 classes in Ontario
- The deadline for teachers to register classes with OJEN is Friday February 22, 2013
- The deadline for poster submission is Friday March 8, 2013. Registered teachers will receive information from OJEN about where to send or drop off class posters in their community.
