  • Second Annual AIM student publishing contest!

    Calling all Canadian AIM teachers and Students!

    Second Annual AIM student publishing contest!                                     


    Do your students love to write and illustrate?

    Would they like to have their work published?


    Last year we received wonderful submissions from students and we published two new readers – story extensions based on L’arbre Ungali and Un frère pénible.


    We are looking to publish two more outstanding student creative writing and combined student artwork, as part of our AIM 2016 readers’ series:



    • engaging story extensions, based on AIM plays (with the exception of L’arbre Ungali and Un frère pénible), between 800-1200 words in length
    • large, bold illustrations in crayon or pencil crayon, centered on pages 8 ½” x 11” The student author or another student artist at the same school may be illustrator.


    How to send?

    Please scan and email:

    • the typed and edited story manuscript, clearly indicating the equal division of the story into 20 parts
    • the 20 illustrations

    Name the authors(s) and illustrator(s) (if different) and the school


    How many?

    Teachers may send a maximum of two entries per school. A maximum of two authors and two illustrators may participate per submission.


    The entries will be judged on the following:

    • Creativity
    • Detail
    • Humour
    • Interesting inclusion of characters from other AIM plays
    • Positive message/moral
    • Beautiful, colourful illustrations
    • The best combination of story and artwork submitted
