Hear Our Words, an Aboriginal youth writing competition, is looking for submissions, with the winning entries being shared at ‘Ut’loo Noye Khunni – Weaving Words Celebration, being held Sept 28 to Oct. 1 at UNBC. Stories can be fictional or fact-based, and should reflect on Aboriginal people, culture, traditions and history. There are three age groups, with different lengths of entry for each: Ages 6-9 – 250-350 words (typewritten preferred, but handwritten accepted; ages 10-13 – 500-800 words, typewritten; ages 14-19: 900-1,200 words, typewritten. The competition is open to all Aboriginal youth in the Prince George region, including status, non-status, Inuit and Metis). A committee of festival organizers will act as judges. Winning writers in each group will have the chance to read their story during the celebration, and will receive a prize bag of books by Aboriginal authors.
