Buy BC

 

OUR CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!

ANNOUNCEMENTS OF THE LOCAL WINNERS

AND PROVINCIAL COMPETITORS COMING SOON!

We are excited to once again partner with the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture for 2020 with a fun colouring contest, in support of Buy BC. While this year is like no other and fairs and exhibitions across the province have had to change their plans, we now know — more than ever! — the importance of buying local and supporting the many farms, growers, and producers around British Columbia!

Get out the crayons and get the kids colouring! There are prizes to be won from your local fair for first, second, and third place in each age category, and the first place winners will be entered into a province-wide competition for a chance to win even more, and may even be named the top Buy BC colourer in the province!
