A student from Katimavik Elementary School in Kanata, Ontario has won second place in the Intermediate category of Passages Canada’s Imagine Culture Photo Contest.
Grade 8 student Serena Knight’s piece “Canada vs. Hong Kong”, reflects on her mother’s dream to become an electrical engineer, leading her to move to Canada while keeping close ties with her family and heritage in Hong Kong.
In its inaugural year, the Passages Canada Imagine Culture Photo Contest encouraged youth ages 5 to 29 across Canada to explore issues of culture, identity, and immigration through photography. Work was juried by an esteemed panel from Passages Canada and The Canadian Encyclopedia.
