About Promotion

Join ONWA’s youth leadership team in celebrating Family Day! Families look different to everyone and ONWA would like to celebrate the ways that our Indigenous youth define their meaning of family and their connection to family.

“It takes a community to raise a child”. The most important purpose of a family is to provide love, guidance, care, and support for its members. Upon reflecting this Family Day, think about what family and community mean to you! 


Make a submission, detailing what family means to you. All art forms are welcome - paintings, drawings, poetry, songs, beading, sewing, story, teaching, etc. The art options are endless, and the sky is the limit!

Who can participate?

Indigenous youth ages 13 to 29 years old who are residence of Ontario.

How do I win prizes?

All entries received through the Submission Form will be evaluated by a panel of judges who will choose three winning entries.

How long is this promotion?

The promotion begins on Monday, February 19, 2024, and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. Winner's will be announced on Tuesday, March 26, 2024.
