What if everyone did something to make the world a better place? That’s exactly what youth from Peel Region are doing.

Peel Regional Police, along with the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board and the Peel District School Board, have been engaging students from grades 7 to 12 with a youth poster competition called “What if everyone did something to be: an ally, to be kind and inclusive”. This competition is for youth, by youth.

The ‘What If’ competition has been around since 2012 and gives students a platform for their voices to be heard and to see them inspire others to become good role models in society.

“I feel like a lot of students don’t think that they have an impact through anything that they do. They don’t think they can make a difference. But through this competition, I feel like that’s very important; that there’s this awareness that this topic should be talked about to really make our community in Peel a better place”, said Aisha Imana, one of the poster competition winners.

When young people are given the opportunity to do great things, this is where the magic happens.  The winning posters will be placed inside transit buses in both Brampton and Mississauga as well as on digital screens within Cineplex Odeon Theatres.  Thousands of people will see these inspirational posters created by Peel students.   You can see all of the winning posters from the 2018-2019 competition for yourself in our  VIDEO.
