Each year, students across the country submit artwork, poetry and essays to the Legion National Foundation’s Annual Poster and Literary Contest. This year, the Canadian War Museum is proud to exhibit the winning entries — eight posters and two literary pieces.
The contest is held at the Senior (Grades 10, 11 and 12), Intermediate (Grades 7, 8 and 9), Junior (Grades 4, 5 and 6), and Primary (Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2 and 3) levels.
