National Immunization Poster Contest
Every other year, Immunize Canada organizes a National Immunization Poster Contest, financially supported by the Public Health Agency of Canada, in conjunction with the Canadian Immunization Conference.
This contest provides Grade 6 students across Canada with an opportunity to submit works of art reflecting their ideas on immunization for good health. The winning posters are subsequently reproduced and distributed in many formats.
The next poster contest will be held in 2018.
National Winners 2016
