The Royal Canadian Legion Youth Education Program has been developed to foster the tradition of Remembrance amongst Canadian youth.
Royal Canadian Legion Branch 92 Youth Education
 As one of our primary goals, fostering Remembrance is a part of everything we do. Thanks to the longstanding tradition of the Annual Literary and Poster Contests, we have been able to involve Canadian school children in helping us to promote not only the National Remembrance Day Service, but also the act of honouring our military heritage. 

Ensuring a Tradition

For some time now, we at Branch 92 have sponsored the annual Poster and Literary Contests it is open to all school children in our Legion area. If you are not part of the schools covered by Branch 92 you can enter at the Legion in your area. Through their participation, youth assist us in one of our primary goals – fostering the tradition of Remembrance amongst Canadians.

Each year, the contests are divided into four categories:

  - Senior – grades 10, 11, 12;

  - Intermediate – grades 7, 8 and 9;

  - Junior – grades 4, 5 and 6; and

  - Primary (Poster Contest only) – grades 1, 2 and 3.

The Poster Contest is divided into two divisions — Colour and Black & White and the Literary Contest is divided into Essay and Poem divisions.

Deadlines for entries in the Poster and Literary Contests are before November 13th at your school or the Gananoque Branch 92 Legion

Entry forms and Guidelines can be found at
