With the Museum temporarily closed to the public to help stop the spread of Covid-19, we’re missing our kid visitors and the colourful drawings they create as part of our Museum Scavenger Hunt. So, we’ve decided to join the colouring page trend! Several museums and archives around the world have created colouring pages from images in their collection – and now we have too! And we want to see your best colouring submissions – so we’re having a little contest.

BV Museum “Colour Our Collection” Contest

Prize: $25 Gift Certificate for Big Smiles Kids Store 

How to participate:

Step 1: Download and print one (or as many as you’d like!) of the four colouring pages that we’ve created from historic photographs in our collection:

J. Mason Adam’s Drugstore, 1913

“Fine Fishing Here” postcard, circa 1930s

Main Street postcard, 1960s

CN Rail Station, 1919

Step 2: Colour!!!

Step 3: Scan or take a photo of your completed page and email it to info@bvmuseum.org, or mail the original it to the BV Museum at PO Box 2615 Smithers BC V0J2N0. Be sure to include your phone number in your email (or on the back of the colouring page if you are mailing).


Contest closes April 15th 2020 ***Deadline extended to April 20th***. Multiple entries welcome. People of any age can participate and share their submission with us, but the prize will be awarded to a randomly selected participant aged 13 or under. Submitted entries may be publicly shared via the Museum`s social media or website; by submitting participants agree to have their submissions shared with the public.
