Law Day Your ChARTer 2020

The Your ChARTer program invites Ontario students to submit a visual or written creative piece of work that represents the core principles of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and what it means to them. 

Over time the way the Charter has been interpreted has changed. How does the Charter impact you in your life? Could its impact change over time? Use your submission to explore the past, present and future of the Charter or show how the Charter has changed and grown.

All elementary (grades 5 – 8) and secondary (grades 9 – 12) students across the province are welcome to participate by sending their submissions through the Your Charter 2021 Online Submission Form.

Leading entries will be voted on by the OBA’s 16 000 Lawyer members across the province. The top 3 submissions for elementary and secondary schools will receive award certificate, have their name and work featured at the OBA’s Conference Centre, website and social media.

The Law Day Committee will evaluate submissions based on content, technical quality, presentation, creativity and integrity. The submissions with the highest scores will be posted on the OBA website for voting. OBA members will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite submissions. 

There will be first, second, and third place recognitions awarded to the top three elementary and top three secondary submissions.
