The “My Edmonton” writing competition, presented by the City of Edmonton Youth Council in partnership with the Edmonton Journal, is a call for junior high and high school aged youth in Edmonton to tell us their true stories of being newcomers in Edmonton. Whether you moved to Edmonton from another town, province, or country, we’re interested in hearing about your experiences in this city.
The entry deadline is March 31, 2012. In each of the Junior High and High School categories, three top entries will be chosen. Prizes will be as follows:
First place: $250 cash prize
Second place: $200 cash prize
Third place: $150 cash prize
Winning entries will be published by the Edmonton Journal.
In addition, all winners will be honored at Edmonton’s Youth Week.
All winners will be notified of the results by May 2012.
