MONTREAL, Dec. 14, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The deadline to register for the Canada 150 Signature project entitled "Dictée P.G.L. 150: Travelling through History" has been extended until January 27, 2017. High schools can sign up at bit.ly/2dSQ4VW for a unique way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation with the Fondation Paul Gérin-Lajoie.
There will be four activities for high school students across Canada. In addition to a dictation contest, a writing contest and a virtual creation project, the Ligue Nationale d'Improvisation (LNI) will be hosting improv workshops and matches at VIA Rail Canada stations (or nearby) across the country (Halifax, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal) in May 2017. The festivities will wrap up with a big show at the Canadian Museum of History on May 26, 2017.
The project has been made possible with support from the Government of Canada, VIA Rail Canada, the LNI, the Alliance des radios communautaires du Canada, MAtv, Canal Savoir, Francolab and the Canadian Museum of History.
