Each year, the CCLA presents a nation-wide high school contest to commemorate the work of Bernard Chernos. Student entries address one of the fundamental freedoms questions posed by us each year (often issues the CCLA itself is working on), examining different civil liberties implications, and applying a ‘reasonableness’ analysis. Entries can be submitted either as essays or as ‘video rants’ (in the style of Rick Mercer, one of Canada’s most famous political humorists).

The Chernos Contest makes a great ready-made assignment for a wide range of high school courses!

Chernos Contest finalists are selected by CCLA lawyers and educators, then judged by a panel of legal scholars, and civil liberties and human rights educators from across the country.

Winners receive certificates and prizes:

  • 1st place: $500 + book
  • 2nd place: $150 + book
  • 3rd place: $100 + book
"Catholic teachers are proud to sponsor the annual Young Authors Awards/Prix Jeunes Écrivains. The awards celebrate the writing talents and accomplishments of students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, who submit short stories, poems, and nonfiction articles (e.g. reflection or report) written in either English or French."
