The contest, open to Grade 5 and 6 students from Innu and Inuit communities including Kuujjuaq and Inukjuak, asked participants to submit photographs that fit the theme “I live here.” Prizes, as chosen by a jury, were given out for each community that participated and Ahoyak Koneak was the winner from Kuujjuaq. Then the public voted on an overall prize among all photos submitted and they chose Gordon. (PHOTO BY ISABELLE DUBOIS)
