Events and Contests
Design a Logo Contest for Metis Youth
Métis Youth British Columbia (MYBC) and Métis Nation British Columbia’s Children and Families (CF) would like to announce the Design a Logo Contest. MYBC in partnership with CF created this opportunity as a way to display the talents of our incredible young artists through the creation of a new logo for the Métis Nation Child and Family Society. This logo will highlight the artistic talents of our Métis Youth. The Design a Logo Contest is designed to engage Métis Youth within the Province of BC by asking them to think about our Métis Youth in care and create an artistic logo where it reflects and honours our youth in care and highlights the beauty and pride in learning about their Métis culture or continuing their journey with their culture!
