Programs for Youth

Our programming is available to youth all across Canada. Programs are delivered completely online using a combination of virtual classrooms and video meetings.

Many of our community partner programs are offered at no charge. When we do have to charge a fee, we aim to keep the cost of our programming low for everyone. (We also have a limited number of bursaries available for those in need. Please contact us if you want to learn more about bursaries.)

Contests and Challenges

The Story Studio Writing Society began in 2011 with the hope of bringing creativity and confidence into children’s lives by giving them the tools to tell stories of their own, in their own words and with their own illustrations.

It’s your first day of school – but what happens when the sun goes down?

Your challenge this month is to write a Flash fiction story about spending the night at school! What might happen in your school while you sleep? Do the pencils take over? Does something lurk in the cafeteria? Tell us what happens in a 500 word story!!

This contest is open to ages 5-13. Prizes will be awarded for the top two stories selected by our esteemed judges for ages 5-9 and 10-13, and stories will be shared on storystudio.ca!
