Canadian Heroines Contest 2007

13 October 2007

Next time the CBC launches a quest for The Greatest Canadian, historian Merna Forster hopes that Canadians will give more votes to women. To help spread the word about great Canadian women and kick-off Women’s History Month in Canada, Forster has launched the Canadian Heroines Contest through her website heroines.ca. Read on for all the details!

The Contest:

To celebrate Women's History Month 2007, we are asking Canadians to show us their favorite Canadian heroine in Canadian history in the medium of their choice: short video, sound recording including song, photograph, painting, sculpture, collage, etc. Show us who your favorite Canadian heroine is in a creative way and you could win a great prize! Plus have your entry featured on heroines.ca.

The FIRST PRIZE WINNERS for each of Age Groups A and B will receive $100 and a copy of the bestselling book 100 Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces by historian Merna Forster. The FIRST RUNNERS-UP for each age category will receive $50 and a copy of the book 100 Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces.

The rules are simple! Your heroine MUST BE:

1. a girl or woman you admire
2. Canadian-born or have accomplished something significant in

You MUST be:

1. 12-16 years of age (Age Group A), or 17 and over (Age Group B)
2. living in Canada

All entries need to be received by 30 November 2007.
