Creative Arts and Media Competition
WE REPRESENT runs a national creative competition that encourages young people to submit creative works inspired by real life stories. The competition culminates in a flagship showcase event that seeks to inspire, enable and connect young people, with scholarships and meaningful internship opportunities awarded to competition winners.
We're tackling a representation and a pipeline problem.
Through telling diverse stories of real role models, we are making young People aware of the opportunities that are available to them, and in turn demonstrating the future that they can step into.
By putting young Canadians in the driver's seat of telling these stories, we're planting seeds of possibility and creating a community along the way.
We use storytelling as a bullhorn to celebrate a diverse set of role models that reshape how we define leaders and role models
We enable young people to unpack old patterns of thinking, adopt new perspectives, and innovate to change the world
Rewrite the Narrative
We transform the passive into the active, participatory and interactive, inspiring young people to step into the world of possibility they can unlock for themselves
Connect and Strengthen
We connect students with each other, and mentors - building a supportive community that teaches, advocates for, and helps each other succeed
