Doctors of BC are calling all secondary and post-secondary students in BC to help raise awareness for youth mental health through their original artwork submissions.
The two contest categories will be for high school students and post-secondary students. A panel of physicians from the Council on Health Promotion and Doctors of BC will review all submissions, selecting one winner from each category
The winners’ artwork will be featured on posters in doctors’ offices, schools, online and via social media with credit given to the artist. Each winner will also receive an Apple iPad Mini.
