The Langford Royal Canadian Legion is here to connect, support, and provide opportunities for the youth of the Westshore Community.
While the Royal Canadian Legion's core mandate is “to commemorate and honour those who served and died for our country and to provide assistance to surviving veterans and their families as well as to serving Canadian Forces personnel”, it also is extensively involved in “supporting the community, educational, medical, social and athletic endeavors among all age groups in Canada”.
Remembrance Day Poster & Literacy Contest
Each year Legions across Canada sponsor this contest for youth.
For the BC/Yukon Command Branches there are four categories:
Primary (Grades 1-3)
Junior (Grades 4-6)
Intermediate (Grades 7-9)
Secondary (Grades 10-12)
Students may submit Posters (Black & White or Colour), Essays, Poems and Videos.
Information packages are provided to schools in October. Langford Legion Branch 91 will pick up all entries from Westshore schools.
Winners at local levels advance to Zones, then Provincial then National with prizes at each level.
