The National Democracy Challenge is underway. If you're a Canadian aged 14 to 30, you're eligible to enter the Challenge — and George is one of the judges.

The theme of this year's contest is "Show and Tell: Democracy in Action," and Elections Canada is looking for an image, a video or a piece of writing expressing what democracy means to you. Check out all the details at the National Democracy Challenge site.

Entries will be judged by George, Rick Mercer and former Governor General the Rt. Hon. Michaëlle Jean, and there are some sweet prizes to be won.

If you're looking for inspiration, check out last year's winners and runners up in the video and image category in the gallery above.

Entries must be submitted by November 16, 2013. Hit the site to submit your work to the Challenge.


To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
