This year, Alberta is celebrating International Education Week (IEW) from November 14 to 18.

International education prepares students to interact with other cultures and helps them become global citizens by gaining knowledge of the international community. The week is celebrated by over 100 countries around the world. 

An exciting way to engage students in IEW is to encourage them to participate in the Think Globally Art Contest. This year’s contest invites kindergarten to Grade 12 students to celebrate the various First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures in Alberta and share their beauty with the rest of the world.

Student artwork entries are requested by January 20, 2017. For further information about the art contest and more background on Alberta’s participation in this year’s IEW, please visit

I welcome and encourage students to take part in the Think Globally Art Contest and look forward to seeing their depictions of our province’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures.
