In celebration of National Police Week (May 14-20) the Nova Scotia RCMP is launching an art contest!

Children from Grade Primary – Grade 6 living in Nova Scotia are asked to get creative by coloring our "Nova Scotia RCMP" art work and submit it for a chance to win a police-themed prize package which includes a visit to their local RCMP detachment.

Three winners will be chosen from each grade category (Primary – Grade 2, Grade 3 – Grade 4 and Grade 5 – Grade 6), for a total of nine winners across the province. Submissions will be judged on originality and creativity and must be received no later than May 15, 2017 to be entered in to the contest.

The contest material is available for download on our website and on our Facebook page, Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia.

The nine winners from across the province will be chosen and notified on May 19, 2017. The winning art work will be showcased on our social media accounts and shared via news release. Please remember that decisions by judges are final.
