Heritage Foundation promoting heritage places and youth creativity.

Students, it’s time to get creative! The Heritage Places Poster Contest is currently running in all schools in the province. It is organized through the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (HFNL).

“2015 marks the 11th year that HFNL has sponsored a poster contest highlighting heritage places in the province,” explains contest coordinator Andrea O’Brien. “Over the years we have been impressed and inspired by the quality of artwork and stories submitted by students across the province. From Nain to Trepassey, students have told us why local heritage places are important to them and their communities. We look forward to this year’s entries as students continue to highlight and celebrate our province’s rich heritage.”

To participate in the contest, students must create an original piece of art depicting a building, structure or landscape that has heritage value in their community. They must also submit a short written statement explaining its heritage value. Prizes are awarded at the primary, elementary, junior high and senior high levels. An overall winner is chosen from these category winners. The winning artwork will be featured on HFNL’s 2016 Heritage Day poster in February.

Contest guidelines and entry forms can be found on HFNL’s website at, by calling 1-866-739-6592 extension 4 or by
