Black History Month Poster Contest Winners

Last year, during Black History Month, we launched a contest for OCSB high school students inviting them to design a poster for the chance to win $1000 of resources for their school. Students were asked to create a large poster or banner (at least 4’x4’), that told our Canadian story, highlighting Black voices, history and achievements. The design also needed to reflect the three pillars of the UN Decade for People of African Descent: Recognition, Justice & Development and connect to our Board’s Spiritual Theme: Seek Justice, Love Kindness & Mercy, Walk Humbly with God. The submissions we received were spectacular, congratulations to this year’s winners.

Winning submission entitled “Held Up By My Hair” by Wiza Mkandawire , grade 12 student from St. Pius X High School.
