Métis Early Learning
Christmas Book Illustration Contest 2024

Exciting News! Our third MNO Early Learning Christmas Book is in the works! We are seeking all “tree-mendous” Early Learning Métis artists!  We are “pining” for Metis artists ages 0-12 to apply to have their Christmas illustrations “spruce” up our book!

Métis children aged 0-12 residing in Ontario are invited to participate. To be eligible, at least one parent, legal guardian, or child must be a Métis Nation of Ontario citizen. Proof of Métis Nation of Ontario citizenship will be required upon application.

Multiple submissions per family are welcomed, so let your creativity shine! However, please note that this is a contest, and while we strive to incorporate as many submissions as possible throughout our Christmas Toy program, not all illustrations will be selected for the book.

Parents or guardians will need to provide consent forms for their child’s artwork to be considered.

Applications will be accepted between April 15th and 22nd, so mark your calendars! Following the application process, further details regarding the illustration process will be provided to successful applicants.

Let your imagination soar and help spread the joy this holiday season!
