The 2021 Mental Health Art Contest has received close to 200 entries this year! They were all so beautiful but only a few could be chosen. We are very happy to announce the winners for the Mental Health Art Contest 2021! See the names and beautiful drawings of some of the winners on the posters. More photos of the drawings will be shared within the next few weeks.
The winning drawings will become greeting cards and postcards to share with the territory!
Nakurmiik, Qujannamiiq, Koana, Matna, thank you to all of the children and youth that participated in the contest.
Ten youth from across the Kivalliq region and two youth from Iqaluit spent a week in Iqaluit to attend workshops during IIKELC’s Peer Leadership Program. The youth spent time with special guest speaker Don Burnstick, who facilitated talking circles on a range of topics including Indigenous community healing, sober living and healthy lifestyles, and cyber.
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s annual Mental Health Art Contest! We received many beautiful and diverse entries from all over the territory in a multitude of mediums, including poetry, drawings, paintings, reels, photography, and sewing.
