Grande Prairie students can win great prizes by using various forms of art to depict this year’s Municipal Government Day theme – Celebrating 150 Years of Canada. 

The Municipal Government Day Art Contest is open to students in three categories: Up to Grade 3, Grades 4-9 and Grades 10-12. For details, check out

The overall prize is an iPad. The winner in each grade category wins a bicycle. Second and third place winners receive Eastlink Centre passes.

This year’s theme is linked to the City of Grande Prairie’s commemoration of the country’s sesquicentennial. Municipal Government Day is one of the Fabulous Five events being presented to mark the country’s 150th year. See more at:

Numerous Ways To Match Theme

Submissions must be focused on Canada’s milestone anniversary. “This year’s theme provides endless opportunities for students to use their imagination,” says David Olinger, Intergovernmental Affairs Manager.

“Young artists can think of honouring Canada in the broader sense or link their pride in our community to this celebration of our country. We are looking forward to seeing the array of ways students express themselves in with this year’s theme.”

Artists can draw, paint, sculpt or use PowerPoint and videos to depict their vision of Celebrating 150 years of Canada.

Awards Ceremony

Prizes will be awarded during a presentation at the June 26 City Council meeting. Municipal Government Day is June 28 in Muskoseepi Park.
