Canadian Navy Centennial
National Essay Contest
The Naval Officers Association of Canada, in conjunction with the Navy Centennial Committee,
invites the grade 9-12 students at your school to participate in a special national Essay/Poem/Artwork
contest. This branch of the armed forces was established under Prime Minister Sir Wilfred Laurier and
came to fruition through the Naval Service Act on April 4, 1910.
The Naval Officers Association of Canada (NOAC) formed in 1946 has been a continual
supporter of the Canadian Navy and Maritime Affairs. Through their Endowment Fund they have
provided scholarships to Junior Naval Officers and Sea Cadets and other Maritime efforts.
Our project invites High School students across Canada to consider the history of the service and
through essay, poem or artwork, submit their perceptions for adjudication. The deadline for submissions
is January 15, 2010. We plan to provide bursaries to the contest winners from each Province and the
Territories with an additional award to the National Winner. It is also proposed that the winners from the
west and Territories be guests at the June 2010 Fleet Review in (Esquimalt) Victoria. Ontario and the
eastern provinces will be guests at the July 2010 Fleet Review in Halifax We hope that the topic will
resonate with History, World Issues, Langu
