Celebrating Canada 150 "Poster and Literary Contests"

Awards for web 6


Kiddo Magazine celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2017, along with Canada's 150th anniversary! Young Canadians joined us and share with us their vision of "Canada 150".

We had a great and beautiful mosaic of contestants across the Niagara Region and the GTA. We are amazed by the talent and creativity displayed on the contests. It was a wonderful experience from the start to the end. We had the opportunity to reach a great number of children during their summer events and camps. The enthusiasm of the youngest was overwhelming and certainly the most rewarded experience for us.

We thank you all people who supported and promoted our contests among children: school teachers, community organizations, parents, summer camps leaders, language schools, community programs, libraries, community events, ethnic press and media.

Special thanks to Mrs. Maria Amelia Lonardi Genral Consul of Argentina in Toronto, to Mrs. Cristina Martins MPP, Mr. Rolando Vera Consul of Ecuador in Toronto, and to Mr. Rodrigo Piñeros from La Guia Magazine.

Special thanks to our community partners for their support and efforts to promote the Hispanic Culture in Canada: Mrs. Isabel Cuellar - Canadian Latin Heritage, Mr. Carlos Bastidas - Hispanic Canadian Arts and Cultural Association, Mrs. Adriana Pazos and Mr. Jose Pelaez - What Did You Bring, Mr. Ivan Triana - Mississauga Latin Festival, Mr. Daniel Garcia Herreros - Pan American Food and Music Festival, Eldy Ampuero - Canadian Hispanic Congres and Margarita Feliciano - York University Glendon Campus.
