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, students choose the Charter right that means the most to them. They design beautiful posters that represent why that right matters for everyone in Canada!
The 2023 winner of the OJEN Poster Challenge in the Toronto Region is Hannah from John Fisher Public School.
Here are the jury comments on Hannah’s work:
“A unique and beautifully drawn poster – all elements were incorporated beautifully with great awareness and a great perspective and understanding of justice in Canada. I greatly appreciated the incorporation and representation of Canada’s diverse communities and populations, including people with disabilities and indigenous communities, just to mention a few.”
“Incredibly detailed (the provincial flags, for example). Clean, yet artistic and vibrant, and inclusive of many different populations and communities.”
“I chose Hannah’s poster because it is beautifully illustrated and celebrates legal pluralism in a visually unique way.”
“I chose Hannah’s poster as I liked her attention to detail and I feel she captured a lot that makes Canada, Canada!”
Congratulations Hannah on your hard work!
The runner up is Arya, also from John Fisher Public School.
Here is the jury comment on Arya’s work:
“I chose Arya’s poster because I was blown away by the maturity of technique that went into the soldier’s face and the perspective in the Toronto city hall picture. I appreciated the whimsical style and the attention to detail the artist employed in this poster.”
Congratulations Arya on your hard work.
We also want to congratulate all the students who participated and their teachers. Everyone worked very hard and all the posters we received depicted our Charter of Rights and Freedoms in creative and thought provoking ways.
