How it works:

OMAH will provide a selection of three poems to your students based on their grade (the categories are K-3, 4-6, 7-8, and High School).  Poems will be emailed to teachers in mid-September, 2022.  Students can choose their favourite and create an illustration that accompanies the words.  Any and all students are welcome to participate!  When your class has completed their illustrations, please deliver them in person or mail them to OMAH by Friday October 14, 2022.  Mailed submissions can use the following address:


Attn: Lindsay Earle

Orillia Museum of Art & History

30 Peter St. S

Orillia, ON

L3V 5A9


Finalist illustrations (as selected by a jury) will be displayed in one of OMAH’s galleries while the remaining illustrations will be exhibited virtually. The winners will be chosen by voting which will take place at OMAH during the exhibition. 

All interested teachers should contact the organisers at historycoordinator@orilliamuseum.org in order to receive communications in September with the poetry and contest outline.

For more information, please send an email to Lindsay Earle.
