For the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the Speakers of the Senate and the House of Commons are hosting a speech writing competition.
The speech must be between 500 to 750 words and based on the topic "What Parliament Means to Me."
Contest finalists will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Ottawa in June where they will meet with the Speakers of the Senate and the House of Commons, and be recognized at a reception at Parliament.
The deadline for entries is April 21.
More details about the contest are available at the Parliament of Canada's Youth Connection Facebook page.
