Canada's Democracy Week
September 14–21, 2015
Who would be a great judge for #NDC2015?
We're crowdsourcing ideas for judges for the National Democracy Challenge. Tell us on Twitter or Facebook or by e-mail who you want to judge the videos, images/artworks and texts that Canadian youth create for this year's Challenge. We'll be announcing the judges later this summer!
Who do you want to hear from as a Guest Blogger?
Know of youth who live, breathe and inspire democratic and civic engagement? Encourage them to blog for us! Be part of #CDW2015 and tell us who you think we should be in touch with. Check out the details on the Guest Bloggers' Series to find out more.
