WIN A TRIP TO BELGIUM IN SUMMER 2017!
Encounters with Canada is proud to partner with the Embassy of Belgium to offer an exclusive, eight-day, all-expenses-paid trip to Belgium for five history-loving EWC Alumni Community members.
This exceptional opportunity is open to all EWC alumni, aged 16 to 18 years, and will include numerous events, workshops and tours of historical sites and museums, highlighting the First and Second World Wars.
Prior to departure for Belgium, the winners will spend three days in Ottawa to join government dignitaries to celebrate Belgian National Day and to meet Canadian celebrities, tour Parliament, visit museums, and make a nostalgic return to the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre!
Celebrate Canada's shared history with Belgium by creating a personalized, contemporary vision of John McCrae's celebrated poem, In Flanders Fields - a symbol of the sacrifices of all who fought in the First World War.
Contest submissions may be in the form of a card, poem, recital, play, video, photo, audio recording, choreography, visual artwork or essay, expressing what In Flanders Fields means to you.
