UCCLF Announces Two New Writing Competitions

The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation would like to introduce two new awards focused on recognition of Canada’s first national internment operations of 1914-1920, during which thousands of Ukrainian Canadians were labelled “enemy aliens” and were interned in camps throughout the country.

The Internment Recognition High School Award requires high school students to submit an essay of up to 1500 words on the topic, while the Internment Recognition Opinion-Editorial Award requires high school or post-secondary students to have their opinion-editorial published in a major Canadian newspaper.  Both awards have a deadline of April 30, 2011.
