As a companion contest to Community Living Ontario's "Together We're Better Contest", CLA is again offering a regional category for students across Algoma.

The contest asks for examples of inclusion at the school, classroom or extracurricular levels. Students can submit their entries independently or as a group and the format can be a poem, short story, video or photo collage.

"My hope is that our contest contributes to creating a more inclusive culture and climate within our schools for all students, parents, staff and people from the community," says Sergio Iacoe, Manager of Inclusion, CLA. "It plays a role in fostering a safe and welcoming place for all people to thrive.

New, to this year's contest, is the option of submitting by email (contest@cla-algoma.ca) or by scanning the QR code to be automatically taken to the entry form.

Prize amounts have also increased this year: 1st ($100); 2nd ($50) and third ($25). Categories are grades JK-3; grades 4-6; grades 7-10; and grades 11 and 12.
