Youth in the Stikine riding can win a trip to Vancouver and a Canucks game in an essay contest.
The contest, which is in its seventh year, is organized by Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson who hopes to engage more young people in politics.
He also visits schools to give students practical examples of how government works.
While there are often concerns about young people not engaged in politics, Donaldson says that’s not his experience.
With an upcoming provincial election, this year’s topic asks young people to tell politicians what is important to them.
The 500-word essay contest is open to youth 13 to 18-years-old who live in the Stikine riding.
The submission deadline is March 1st, contact Doug Donaldson’s constituency office for more information.
