About the 2024 Design

We are extremely excited to announce our 2024 Every Child Matters Orange Shirt Design! A HUGE congratulations to our contest winner, Aliyah Bautista, for her beautiful design.

Aliyah is a grade 11 student from Ponoka, Alberta. Her design features a child in the middle to represent the “I” in child. However, it is also to honour those who have died as a result of the Indian Residential Schools or are healing from them. It’s to remind people that all children are important. To Aliyah, Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity to recognize how many individuals have lost their families and cultures as a result of residential schools. Participating in Orange Shirt Day honours those who have lost their freedom, language, and worth, and raises awareness about the damage done by the schools and respects those that attended them.

Thank you again, Aliyah, for your meaningful design and for your help in raising awareness on the impacts of Indian Residential Schools.

Those wanting to design their own shirts are encouraged to do so.

Feel free to put a design on an orange shirt that means something to you or to your Nation, but please be sure to use our slogan, Every Child Matters.

You also may want to wear an orange bandana, scarf, button, (or whatever else you like) and those can be fun to design too!

Please make sure you are in compliance with our Branding and Copyright Policy when creating your own shirts.
