Tłı̨chǫ “Lifting Our Spirits” Online Contest

The goal for this contest is to lift the spirits up of our people. Together we can get thru this outbreak. It’s a time where we can be creative with our families. A time to laugh, a time to come together, a time to just have fun virtually. The Covid-19 outbreak has been stressful for everyone during this time. Households are told to isolate and stay home as much as we can. It can be hard on our mental health. This contest is open to all Tłı̨chǫ residing in Behchokǫ̀, Whatı̀, Gamètı̀, Wekweètı̀ and Yellowknife.

To enter any of the categories for the contest. All you need to do is upload a video/photo to Facebook Using #TlichoStrong. Make sure you add what community you are living in and state what category you are entering and your age group. If an elder doesn’t have Facebook, please upload for them and make sure you add their information to the post. You also need to make sure your post is under the comment section. If you are entering the contest, you have to be okay with your video/photo being made public. The most likes on Facebook will win the contest. 

The Contest will be open until November 19, 2021. Once it closes, we will leave it open for a week for the public to vote on them. Once the week is past we will post the winners for each category and age group. 

Contest is based on how many “likes” your photo or video receives.  

Open to Tłı̨chǫ Citizens living in Behchokǫ̀, Whatı̀, Gamètı̀ & Wekweètı̀, Yellowknife & Non Residents. It is important to state which Community you reside in.
