Diverse Minds 2020/21 Launches Toronto Pilot* Project

Check out our brand new website, with a hub for all things Diverse Minds. Get all the information your students need to enter this year’s competition where they can win up to $3000 and get published!

The Diverse Minds Creative Writing competition is running for the first year in the Toronto Pilot* Project area and it is the perfect project for your students to take part in over the winter break.

We invite high school students to reflect on the value of a society rooted in mutual respect, by writing and illustrating a story aimed at elementary school students (Kindergarten-Grade 5).

This contest is about peer-to-peer learning and recognizing that students will lead the way in creating school communities where diversity is embraced. The goal of Diverse Minds is to empower our youth to become role models for each other and understand that their impact reaches beyond their classrooms.

*Check the map on the poster below for details of the Toronto Pilot Project boundaries.

The winning book in each region will be published in a colourful hardcover format and distributed to all local elementary schools and public libraries.

Cash prizeswill be awarded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place books, and the Top 10 Finalists will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in September.
