This community fair and contest is a youth-initiated, volunteer-driven, community-based event that will provide community members and families with local resources, entertainment, networking opportunities and fun activities! The purpose of the project is to celebrate diversity and multiculturalism through stories, enhance social inclusion and provide easy access to community resources and services.
Every newcomer youth has a story about starting a new life in Canada. Tell your story through film, dance, music or writing! We are looking for immigration stories that match our theme of 'A Colourful Life: Diversity in Canada'. Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) is giving away two $500 scholarships to youth who are willing to share their stories at the Tales from Around the Globe Community Fair on March 17, 2018. The contest is open to everyone between the ages of 12 and 20.
For any further questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
