SKCDA Invites You to Support Black History Month Essay Competition
As a partner passionate about helping youth access opportunity to realize their potential, we’d like you to know that the 10th Annual RBC Black History Month Student Essay Competition is now open. We encourage you to share this with your student networks.
The competition asks students to learn about and share their thoughts on how black Canadians have helped to define Canada’s diverse heritage and identity through their achievements and contributions to the broader society.
Open to grade 12 students applying to post-secondary institutions for the 2019/2020 academic year.
Essays must be 750 words or less.
Essays can be submitted in both official languages (French/English).
There are 30 scholarships available including three top prizes valued at $1,500, $2,500, and $5,000.
Celebrating the past, present and future contributions of black Canadians, the competition, now in its 10th year, is one of a kind in Canada and has provided scholarships to more than 130 students since its inception. It celebrates the rich cultural mosaic that makes this country so unique, while helping to offset the ever-increasing cost of post-secondary education.
The competition will be judged by a jury of community leaders from across Canada, and the winners will be announced on February 8, 2019.
