The winners are in! BC RCMP Youth Challenge Coin Contest

B.C., Community Policing Services

2022-01-06 16:04 PST

The BC RCMP Community Policing Services and the Surrey RCMP Youth Team challenged talented students across BC to design the BC RCMP Youth Officer Challenge Coin. Youth 14-18 years of age were empowered to create a coin that symbolized the community they live in and the positive connection between the RCMP and youth in BC. There were several creative and unique designs as the youth in BC truly shined with their submissions making it difficult to select the four winners, one winner in each of the BC RCMP Districts across the province.

After review of several entries and careful deliberation, the winners were selected.

Congratulations to: Brooke Weseen, Megan Scaiano, Emily Rose and Patrik Balazsy.

Winners will work alongside BC RCMP and a coin designer to ensure the message portrayed by their design is carried through in the creation of the coin.
