Begbie Canadian History Contest Society

The Begbie Contest Society is a nonprofit society run on a volunteer basis by retired high school teachers. The society’s main goals are to promote Canadian history, to challenge students to think critically about historical problems, and to make available a wide variety of interesting primary sources. The society produced an annual Canadian history contest for secondary students which was designed to test critical thinking, and awarded cash prizes, medallions, and certificates of participation. It held its final contest in 2013, but continues to provide resources on Canadian history on its website.
