Youth Video Competition 2020

We want YOUR help as we Build a Community of Professionals.

AFOA Canada wants Indigenous youth to know that there is a great demand within both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities and organizations for Indigenous financial management professionals. Few of our young people are pursuing an education in financial management after high school. We want to encourage our youth to create a video sharing their community and showing how an education in financial management will help better the lives of themselves, their community members, peers and family in a short video. This is a great opportunity to showcase your community.

Youth between the ages of 12 and 19 are invited to share their original short films and animations for a chance to win prizes. The submission deadline is December 31, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact us at communications@afoa.ca.
