The Shevchenko Foundation is excited to be celebrating the 9th KOBZAR™ Book Award  Presentation on March 24th, 2022 for the first time in Winnipeg! The event will take place at the Winnipeg Art Gallery with a cocktail reception followed by a multi-media award presentation featuring readings by short-listed authors.

This is a very special opportunity for you, as a leader in the community, to be involved with this biennial event. The KOBZAR™ Book Award recognizes outstanding contributions to Canadian literary arts by authors who write on a topic with a tangible connection to the experiences of Ukrainian Canadians. With your valued support, we will continue to focus on this very important niche in Canadian and North American literary awards.

We ask you to please review the sponsorship options available and consider supporting our event by purchasing a ticket or by corporate sponsorship.
