Every year, grade 5 students from around the province take part in OJEN’s Poster Challenge Program. Working with their teachers and with OJEN materials to learn about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the students choose the Charter right that means the most to them and design beautiful posters that represent why that right matters for everyone in Canada!
The 2022 winner of the OJEN Poster Challenge in the Central East Region is Valerie from St Charles Garnier in Richmond Hill.
Here are the comments of our jury on Valerie’s work:
All of the elements drawn have been beautifully integrated and expressed, so that they flow well together. While many posters demonstrate a lot of written content reflective of the Charter, this poster stands out because of its focus on images and symbolism. With its incredibly detailed drawings and well-thought out design, it’s very captivating!
Congratulations Valerie on your hard work!
The runner up is Angela, also from St Charles Garnier.
Here are the comments of our jury on Angela’s work:
This poster is really beautiful and original, exploring different ideas that we usually see in the Poster Challenge. Drawings neatly illustrate the text in a quite striking manner, weaving a very interesting narrative. It also includes minority language rights, which is a part of the Charter that is unfortunately too often ignored.
Congratulations Angela on your hard work.
