Submissions are preferred in electronic medium format. Teachers who submit work electronically will have their names entered into a special prize draw!


Students will be "reporters" going to elders, bringing back their stories.

Selection of the winning entries will be based on richness of content, style, and presentation.


Classes that participate in the project will have done most of the work required to receive funding ($300) from Industry Canada's "Generations CanConnect" program.


To ensure that your class meets the GCC criteria, it is suggested that:

  • stories be between 150 - 300 words
  • each story should be supported by a photograph, audio, or video clip

The Help Desk is a partner in the GrassRoots program and is responsible for receiving applications, helping classes meet the necessary requirements, approving projects, and making payments to the schools. Up to 40 projects from First Nation schools in the Atlantic region may be funded through February, 2004. For more details, contact us after visiting

The GrassRoots Program (including Generations CanConnect) is funded by Industry Canada through SchoolNet.
