The City of Markham is committed to being a diverse and inclusive city where everyone feels welcome and a sense of belonging. A city where everyone feels they can live their best life.
The Many Faces of Markham contest is an annual initiative sponsored by the City of Markham’s Race Relations
Committee. This initiative supports the annual United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on March 21, 2021. It engages the community’s children and youth to reflect on, and speak out against, all forms of racism to foster a community characterized by values of inclusion, belonging, equity and kindness. This year, due to COVID-19, there will not be any in person components to the contest.
Many Faces of Markham is an art, writing, spoken word and video competition open to children and youth from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in Markham and supports City and school board mutual priorities in the areas of inclusion, anti-racism, equity and diversity.
The theme for this year’s Many Faces of Markham contest is “Working Together to Confront Anti-Black Racism”. Please see here for the MFOM Contest Information and the full MFOM Contest Application Form, Consent & Release Form.
Contest Deadline is April 23rd, 2021.
