It's official, we have our first BC/Yukon Legion Patriot Voice!
Join us in congratulating Rachel Layne, age 15, a Grade 11 student at Mount Boucherie Secondary School in West Kelowna!
Rachel will sing "O Canada" and "Amazing Grace" at the Salute to Veterans and Military Valour during the BC Lions Half-time Show on Friday, November 1, 2013.

We got an amazing response from youth to this new BC/Yukon contest! Rachel is the first place winner among the 27 entries received and we can assure you, the judging was not an easy task.
The Patriot Voice will become an annual BC/Yukon Legion contest and we encourage you to keep spreading the word as you visit schools in the coming months. Our traditional youth Poster and Literacy contests have proven for decades that young people want to pay tribute to our men and women in uniform, especially Veterans. Our role is keep moving the markers in providing them with fun, exciting opportunities, which engage all artistic talents, and this is exactly what we are doing.
Let's really put on a show during the Salute on November 1st. Come join us as Legion Marchers on the field. Let's have a sea (or a football field in this case) of Legion uniforms marching proudly!
The Youth Committee thanks everyone for promoting The Patriot Voice in your branch, community and schools.
