CBC Kids Prime Minister for a Day Contest

Does your child want to see what it's like to be a prime minister for a day? Tell us why for a chance to win a trip for your family of up to 4 people (up to 2 adults and up to 2 children) to Ottawa during the months of May or June (to be determined by CBC). Enter here!

A judging panel comprised of CBC Kids Staff will choose the winning entrant. The winner will receive a trip for their family up to 4 people (up to 2 adults and up to 2 children) to Ottawa during the months of May or June, as determined by CBC. 

The trip will include:

  • return economy airfares from the Canadian airport closest to the winner's residence;
  • accommodation for 3 nights at a hotel in Ottawa to be chosen by CBC in its sole discretion (one room, quadruple occupancy);
  • reasonable transportation costs pre-approved by CBC, for round-trip economy train, bus or taxi (as appropriate) transfers between the winner's residence and departure airport and between the destination hotel and the Ottawa airport, upon provision of receipts;
  • $1,000 spending money

The winning child and a guardian must be available on one of the days for taping with CBC Kids at various locations in Ottawa. The dates, times, and locations of taping will be determined by CBC Kids. All transportation associated with this taping will be arranged and paid for by CBC Kids.

The approximate total retail value of the prize is CDN $6,900.00 based on the Vancouver International Airport.
