Introducing the 2022 Bath Canada Day Button
Designed by Abby de Sousa
Abby’s button will join the rest of the Bath Canada Day Buttons on display in the Bath Museum.
Thanks to Mr. David Golding, her button will be transferred to the BIG BUTTON format. Both the big button and Abby have been invited to ride in the Parade on July 1st.
Many thanks to the Bath Artisans group for selecting the winners. They were impressed by the how well the designs fit this year’s theme, Planting Seeds for Change
Past Button Winners
Presenting the 2021 Bath Canada Day Button and runner up designs.
Congratulations to Ava Baldwin, this year’s winning designer. Ava will have her design transferred to the “BIG BUTTON” which will be on display in Centennial Park early in June for all to see. Her button will also become part of the permanent button display at the Bath Museum.
Thank you to the Bath Artisans who did the selection and to LaFarge for sponsoring this event.
Because of COVID restrictions once again a limited number of buttons have been produced. Your donation will help fund the 2022 kids activities.
The Bath Canada Day Annual Button Design Contest
One of the enduring traditions around Canada Day in Bath is the annual button design contest sponsored by the Bath Canada Day Committee.
This year’s winning design is the 47th button created to celebrate our national holiday. All the buttons are on display at the Bath Museum. Be sure to stop in and see the collection when the Museum opens. Opening times are posted on the Bath Museum webpage-https://www.bathmuseumontario.com/visit.
They are also found on our website: bathcanadaday.ca
The button design contest is open to all children living in or attending elementary schools in Loyalist Township. Prizes are awarded to the 1st place design ($50) and to 3 runner-up entries ($25 each).
We truly appreciate the volunteers from the Bath Artisans who judge the entries. The format is such that the judges are unaware of the artist’s age, school or grade.
2020 Bath Canada Day Button Design Contest
Congratulations to Kyle Ross, winner of this year’s Bath Canada Day Button Design Contest.
A limited number of buttons have been produced and are available by donation to any one who would like one. Because this is such an usual year and time, we expect collectors will be quick to pick these up.
Buttons are available by calling Mary Ann at 613-352-5747 or Diane at 613- 352-5670. You can do a front porch pick up or arrange for a delivery.
Buttons are packaged in 1’s and 2’s for safety’s sake and are now available at Heritage Point Gifts and Fast Freddy’s
Kyle’s winning design will be made into a large wooden button and displayed prominently in the Village. Watch for it by mid-June
His button will be the 46th button to be produced and will join the display at the Bath Museum.
Thank you to all the children who submitted designs and to the Bath Artisans who had the difficult task of picking just four.
Natalie is the 2nd place winner this year.
Natalie and Brittnay Bienias ( 2012) are the only designers to win a prize 2 years in a row.
