Heritage Day

Each year, Yukoners celebrate Heritage Day on the Friday before the last Sunday in February. This ties into the Canada-wide celebration of Heritage Week, for which the National Trust of Canada selects a theme. YHMA runs an annual contest for Heritage Day, inspired by the year's theme.

This year's theme is "2020 Vision: Bringing the Past Into the Future." You can download the contest entry form (and a bonus word search!) below. The contest form includes an original piece of artwork from Chris Caldwell to colour, a short written question to answer. and instructions on how to submit your entry.

Entries must be submitted by Friday, Feburary 28. Winners will be announced the first week of March.

Thank you to the Old Log Church Museum and Parks Canada for donating the prizes.
