Orange Shirt Day 2021 T-Shirt Design Challenge

This year, for the first time, ASD-W hosted an Orange Shirt Day T-shirt Design Challenge. Over 100 Indigenous youth within ASD-W and Wolastoqey community schools participated. Three artists were selected to have their designs featured on hundreds of orange shirts, stickers and pins for Orange Shirt Day on September 30, 2021. While only three designs were selected, this project provided an opportunity to showcase the ideas and talent of Indigenous youth.

The selected artists were surprised with a celebration at their school. With classmates, teachers and families around them, each student was gifted a framed picture of their design, a certificate, and a gift bag full of goodies. The students were also given the opportunity to work with Natalie Sappier and Brandon Mitchell to finalize their artwork. Congratulations to all the participants!

 The young artists whose designs will be featured on the 2021 Orange Shirt Day t-shirts are:

  • Serenity, Grade 8, George Street Middle School

  • Silas, Grade 1, Gibson-Neill Memorial

  • Jasmine, Grade 3, Wulastukw Elementary
