BRANTFORD, ON –Healthy Kids invites families to submit photographs of their family traditions throughout October, November and December for the chance to win a $25 gift card and prize pack. The photo contest is another one of many activities that have taken place throughout the year as part of the Healthy Kids Celebrate Culture program.

Engaging with our kids through family traditions is an essential way to celebrate and share our cultures with our community,” says Brantford Mayor Kevin Davis. “As an active grandfather, I know the importance of the Healthy Kids program and I am very excited to champion this new photo contest where families can have fun making memories and share those moments with others.”

A new photo contest will launch each month from October 15 until December 24, 2021. From October 15 to 31, 2021, share your favourite family Fall tradition. Submit a photo of your favourite traditional family recipe from November 8 to 26, 2021. And finally, from December 6 to 24, 2021, send in a photo of your family celebrating holiday traditions.
