$1,000 BLUE METROPOLIS AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN INDIGENOUS STUDIES

$1,000 BLUE METROPOLIS AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN INDIGENOUS STUDIES

The Blue Metropolis Awards for Excellence in Indigenous Studies are an initiative of the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival and the  McConnell  Foundation.  The  award recognizes two students, one francophone, the other anglophone, who  are  enrolled  during  the  fall  2019   or   winter 2020 in either an Indigenous Studies or Indigenous Literature program or an Anthropology program for their outstanding academic performance (excellence, perseverance, creativity and engagement).

In addition to each receiving a $1,000 award, the two winning students will be invited to attend the Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival* (next edition: May 1 – 6, 2020) where they will be invited to read a short essay of their own composition  during  an event   that   is   part   of   the   Festival’s series  on  Indigenous  Literatures   and   Cultures. This essay should  deal with social  change  and  the  role  of  the individual in a rapidly changing world, as well as the concepts of social inclusion and dialogue.

TO PARTICIPATE (before March 20, 2020)

Students are invited to submit their candidacy by completing the the form found at bluemetropolis.org/firstpeopleawards. In addition, the student will write a 200- to 300-word essay that answers the question “What is the definition of a just society?”. A jury will select 10 finalists. Each finalist will produce, and send to the Festival, a three-minute video on the topics of social change and social inclusion, mentioning why they wish to take part in the Blue Metropolis Festival.

*Travel and accommodation costs will be paid by the Foundation.
