Ending Violence Against Indigenous Women Youth Art Contest Winners

The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) held an Ending Violence Against Indigenous Women Youth Art Contest in November/December 2022. We asked Indigenous youth (ages 11-25) to submit artwork showcasing: “What ending violence against Indigenous women look like to you?”

Submissions were sorted into 3 age brackets: ages 11-14, ages 15-18, and ages 19-25. Each bracket had their own 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. All submission was individually scored by a panel of judges, scores were tabulated to decide the winners.
