#YQL Expressions of Reconciliation Contest Winners to be Announced

Event Date: Friday, December 14, 2018   |   10:00am

Event Location:  Indigenous Space – Lethbridge Public Library (North Wing, Main Branch)

The winners of the first #YQL Expressions of Reconciliation Art & Media contest will be announced on Friday, December 14, at 10:00am. Members of the media and the public are invited to join us to recognize the winners, and view the submissions in the new Indigenous Space at the Lethbridge Public Library (North Wing – Downtown branch).

The contest opened for submissions following the City’s Reconciliation Week in September, and invited local artists of all ages to submit their work for a chance to win a cash prize. The first year saw six submissions from across the community, and included poetry, photography, paintings, hand-drawn art, and weaving.

While the three winners will take home cash prizes, all six artists will have their work showcased at the Lethbridge Public Library.

First Place: $350 – Sponsored by Reconciliation Lethbridge

Second Place: $200 – Sponsored by United Way of Lethbridge & South Western Alberta

Third Place: $150 – Sponsored by Lethbridge Indigenous Sharing Network
