World Hepatitis Day: Canadian Youth Poster Contest!

Are you a talented artist? Are you between the ages of 14-19? Are you passionate about using your skills to raise awareness about important issues? If you answered yes to all of the above, we have an exciting announcement for you!

The Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH), in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity, will be hosting a national poster contest for World Hepatitis Day 2016!

We are asking youth from all across Canada, between the ages of 14-19, to submit poster designs that will not only be awesome to look at but will also help raise awareness about hepatitis B or C. It can be anything from rates of hepatitis in Canada, to promoting the importance of getting tested, or even highlighting the importance of harm reduction strategies! We want these posters to reflect the voices of youth on this important topic! (If you do use facts, please include where you got your information from.) Submissions will be accepted in English or French.

There will be two winners, one from each age category (14-16 and 17-19)! Not only will each winner get $200, but your poster design will be shared and used as promotional material to raise awareness about hepatitis in future World Hepatitis Days all across Canada!
