Every year the Royal Canadian Legion hosts a Youth Poster & Literary Remembrance contest.

It is open to all youth with posters submitted in colour or black and white from students in Grades 1-12.

There is also an essay and poetry contest for students in Grades 4-12 and video submissions for students in Grades 7-12.
