OJEN Poster Challenge 2022: Register now!

The Poster Challenge invites grade 5 students to create posters that express what they value about Canadian democracy and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It meets Grade 5 Ontario curriculum expectations in Social Studies in a fun and effective way.

A selection of posters will be included in OJEN’s Art in the Courts program – an initiative designed to highlight positive community involvement with our courts. Each year students’ posters are selected and sent to courthouses across the province to make courthouses a more welcoming and friendly place for children and families.

Please note that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you will not have to deliver the posters to your local courthouse but instead you will need to scan them and submit them online.

Registration will close on Tuesday, November 30th at midnight.

Visit the Poster Challenge web page for more information about how to participate. It includes links to a teacher’s guide and optional lesson plans that will help your students learn about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and decide what principle is the most meaningful to them.

Also, check out the “Art and the Courts Teacher’s Guide”  for a virtual courthouse tour, additional classroom activities and previous winners of the Poster Challenge.
