2016: Drawing Contest
On the International Day of the Girl Child, Femmes en Emploi and FOVA (Fondation Voix Angélique) organized a great free drawing contest from September 1 to October 1, 2016. It was open to all children and teenagers who like to draw or paint, on the theme: “For me, the International Day of the Girl is…”
They had to create a drawing and accompany it with a short text to explain the place of girls in the world and what can make them happy.
The work gave the jury members Emmanis Jean-Louis, grand prize winner of a drawing contest for Laval in 2013; Anite Martin-Marseille, a social worker; and Youri-Jones Vilmay, an amateur illustrator.
The drawing techniques were free: pencils, paint, felt pens, pastels, collages or digital files.
The three most beautiful drawings in each category: 6-8 years old, 9-11 years old and 12-17 years old, will be exhibited tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11, 2016, starting at 5:00 pm at the Maison Culturelle et Communautaire de Montréal-Nord, located at 12004 Rolland Boulevard, Montréal-Nord, QC, Montréal H1G 3W.
