Students studying or living in D'Arcy-McGee riding invited to participate in video contest

D'Arcy-McGee MNA David Birnbaum is organizing a riding-wide student video competition to commemorate and celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, according to a press release available on the Côte St. Luc city website. 

The contest is called, “Canada at 150: My story, your story.”

Students living or studying in the riding are invited to produce a video, no longer than two minutes, where they  interview grandparents, a neighbour or a relative “about their thoughts on coming to or living in Canada, and/or the students’ own reflections on the occasion of Canada’s 150th.”

Two iPad mini prizes will be handed out for winning videos, one to an elementary school student and the other to a secondary school student. The winners will be announced and their videos presented at Côte Saint-Luc’s Canada Day celebrations on July 1.

The deadline for the video entries is June 2, 2017 at 4 pm. Entries should be submitted to darcymcgeeqc@gmail.com

The three-member jury to choose the winners includes CTV Montreal News Anchor Mutsumi Takahashi, former Canadian Justice Minister and Mount Royal MP Irwin Cotler and Citizenship Judge Barbara Seal.
