Prizes of $500 and $300 will be awarded to the winning submissions in three categories. More information can be found at www.reacttoracism.ca.

The challenge will lead up to the United Nations Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination which will be held on March 21, 2013.

(NEEDS), the Manitoba Association of Rights and Liberties (MARL), Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata, the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba (TRCM), Seven Oaks School Division, Manitoba Education, and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC).
