On National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, we are asking the #UWaterloo community to share their knowledge on Indigenous Canadian History! To support this ask, we are hosting a draw for you to win a piece of artwork by local Indigenous artist, Alanah Astehtsi Otsistohkwa (Morningstar) Jewell, @morning.star.designs! 


No purchase required.   

Comment on the official contest Instagram post with:  

(1) a date or year that is important to Canadian Indigenous History 

(2) why that is important or significant   

Multiple entries are accepted. Hate or hurtful speech, bullying, and/or harassment will result in a ban from the contest and potentially future contests held by the @yourWUSA, or any affiliated WUSA, social accounts.  



The contest is open to all current University of Waterloo undergraduates.    



On June 28th, a random draw will be conducted by the WUSA Communication Coordinator from among all eligible entries.  


Winners will be notified that their name was selected through the direct messaging functionality on Instagram within 24 hours of submissions closing. A WUSA staff member will ask for your name, program, year of study, UWaterloo email address, and to correctly answer the mandatory mathematical skill-testing question. Once the questions are answered and the entrant is confirmed to be a current undergrad, they/she/he shall be declared the winner, subject to meeting all the conditions described in these rules.  


If the winner cannot be reached within 2 days following the first attempt of contact, incorrectly answers the mathematical skill-testing question, or declines the prize, the prize shall be forfeited and WUSA has the right, at its sole discretion, to select another winner by following the procedure as outlined above.
