The deadline has been extended for a contest to have Tri-City students write about their favourite Port Moody hero.

The Port Moody Arts Centre moved its deadline to March 24 to allow for more entries in its Heroes with heART competition.

The project will see youth pen an essay about a Port Moody hero; winners will then be paired with PoMo artists to capture the hero's likeness. And those portraits will be on display at the arts facility starting May 5 to coincide with the Port Moody Youth Festival. Visit to enter.



Volunteers with backgrounds in finance, law, communications, human resources or fundraising are being sought to join the Port Moody Arts Centre's new board of directors.

The St. Johns Street hub is calling for applicants to stand for election at the May 30 AGM of the PMAC Society. At that time, candidates can speak about their commitment to the arts and volunteering experience.

To apply by the May 9 deadline, visit to download a form.
