Kids' history magazine competition looking for illustrated stories from 7 - 14 year olds

Kayak, the history magazine for kids, is looking for illustrated stories about Canadian history  (500-1,200 words; 1 - 3 illustrations or archival photographs) for the 2015 Governor General's History Awards. The competition, in both official languages, is open to kids between 7 and 14 and the deadline is May 1. 

The stories will be evaluated by a panel of judges on the basis of creativity and originality, content and story composition, grammar, spelling and quality of writing and use of illustrations to support the story.

The top two writers, one French and one English, will receive a $1,000 RESP and a trip to Ottawa. The top twenty-five stories will be published on the magazine's website and awarded a complimentary subscription to Kayak: Canada's History Magazine for Kids. All participants will receive a special certificate commending them on their participation.
