Whether it's with words or pictures or both, the City is asking its young residents to contribute to the Kamloops bicentennial.
A Children's History of Kamloops is being published to commemorate the arrival of Europeans in the city 200 years ago.
The Kamloops Museum and Archives is compiling artwork and essays for the publication, and is asking anyone under 18 to pick a topic and create a picture or story to go into the book.
Examples of possible topics include the fur trade in Kamloops, important figures such as John Fremont-Smith or Chief Nicola, or a relative in the family with historic ties to the city.
Topics must be submitted to the museum for approval by Aug. 8, to avoid duplication. Approved topics will be due by Aug. 17. Art submissions can be drawn with paint, wax crayon or felt markers and can include a 100 to 500 word essay or description.
The book is being published in fall.
Anyone with questions can call Melissa Baker, museum educator, at 250-828-3493, or go online to www.kamloops.ca/museum for more details.
