The Vancouver Foundation of Art, Justice and Liberty sponsors a yearly essay competition for students in grades 10 through 12. The purpose of the competition is to heighten awareness and stimulate discussion of values and concepts in the areas of art, justice, and liberty. It is hoped that the competition will complement subjects included in the school curriculum, especially in courses within the departments of English, Social Studies, History, Law, Fine Arts, Religion and Humanities.
The board of the Foundation includes educators and professionals from various backgrounds who believe in the value of competitions in aiding the development of research and analytical skills in students.
Notice to Teachers
We encourage you to promote the competition and post the attached announcement at your school. In past years, some teachers have made the essay competition an assignment for their students. When students have completed an entry we suggest that a coordinating teacher assemble the entries and forward them to the Foundation office.
