Logo Contest

The Indigenous Youth Engagement Trade Initiative project was created to promote, engage, support and explore opportunities for Indigenous youth within trades.


The Indigenous Youth Engagement Trade Initiative (IYETI) is a collaboration between Skills Canada New Brunswick, the Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) and the Department of Post-Secondary Education Training and Labour (PETL).  

We’ve decided to run this contest because we believe that our new logo should be created by youth for youth. We’re really excited to see the creative submissions from the Indigenous youth in our communities and we hope that all of you that participate have fun coming up with new ideas.

The contest will run from February 1 – 28, 2019 and the theme of all logo submissions should be “Indigenous Youth in Trades”.
