The contest was part of the leadup to the Culture Days weekend Sept. 27 to 29.

During the fourth annual Culture Days more than 500 free, interactive activities took place in 46 communities across B.C., joining thousands of similar activities across Canada that invited people to get involved with local arts and artists in their communities to share their love of culture.
