National Immunization Poster Contest

Every other year, Immunize Canada organizes a National Immunization Poster Contest for Grade 6 students, in conjunction with the Canadian Immunization Conference.

The Poster 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 reproduced and distributed in many formats.

Thank you to Canadian Geographic and the Canadian Paediatric Society for generously donating excellent prizes to the 2018 National Immunization Poster Contest!



All original paper artwork submitted to the contest is retained by Immunize Canada.

Judging Criteria:

Submitted posters are judged on the following 3 criteria:

  • creative (Is the poster imaginative?)
  • colourful (Do the bright colours catch your eye?)
  • clear message (Does the poster tell us why it is important to immunize kids?)
