Our 12th annual contest connects Alberta students with important Alberta pioneers, founders, builders, innovators and Indigenous leaders; as well as their impact on today’s important social issues.
In 2021, we are proud that our contest is endorsed by The Honourable Lois Mitchell, CM, AOE, LLD, former Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.

The contest is open to students from all schools in Alberta, from Grades 4-6 and Grades 7-9 (see rules and judging rubrics).
