2020 Newcomer Students Video Competition


The Community Relations Department invites Newcomer Youth Grades 7-12* to submit their entries to this year’s video competition. 

The theme for this year's competition is: "What I Wish My Teacher Knew About Me" 


Create a group or individual video submission: landscape format, max. 60 seconds. Submission examples include: poem, spoken word, song, skit, or monologue. Non-newcomer students may choose to work with a newcomer student to come up with a video under a group submission.


All submissions will receive a certificate of participation. Six winning submissions will be chosen – with prizes of $50 for individual submissions, and $75 for group submissions. The 6 best entries will be used to create a curated 3-minute video which will be shared with our teachers as part of their PD on knowing the students, equity and diversity. 


Deadline: Friday, October 23, 2020 at 5 p.m. 


*Permanent residents, International students or Refugees who arrived in Canada from 2015-2020
