2019 Results

 

The North Bay Municipal Heritage Committee would like to announce the winners of this year’s Youth Engagement Photography Contest.

 

Prizes are to be awarded to the following winners:

 

1st Prize - $100 DIA GIFT CARD

 

Name: Bobbie M.

 

 

Age: 17

 

Name: A Lifetime in my

Grandmother’s Hands

 

“Through all that she has lost, my Grandmother is still trying to reconnect with parts of her lost culture. The goose wing she is holding in the photo is a cultural item that my parents were wed with. This is symbolic of her refusing to lose her grasp on her heritage and how current generations can help rebuild that connection.”

 

 

2nd Prize - $50 DIA GIFT CARD

 

Name: Katelyn W.

 

 

Age: 14

 

Name: Evolution of Rail

 

“This photo highlights the built heritage

of North Bay because not only were the trains built and worked on by

hardworking people, but the city was

built to serve as a railway city. As you

can see the photo shows the history of North Bay over time by showing the evolution of one of North Bay’s highly important heritage pieces, the railroad

and rail transportation.”

 

 

3rd Prize - $25 DIA GIFT CARD

 

Name: Sina E.

 

 

Age: 17

 

Name: Mixed Emotions

 

“I was by the waterfront … when I noticed there were many inuksuks everywhere. Also, there was a storm coming in from the left side

so half the sky was sunny

and the other cloudy.”
