We Have a Winner! Actually 3 Winners!
Updated: May 19
The OSSTF Student Achievement Awards is a prestigious writing and creative arts competition which is open to all public secondary school students in Ontario. The competition is meant to encourage the intellectual development of our students and an interest in society.
Judging is held at the school, District, Regional and Provincial levels. Nine provincial winners are awarded $1000 each in prizes and are invited to the Annual General Meeting of the OSSTF in March where a video showcasing their work is screened.
Each year a new theme is determined by the Recognition and Promotion Sub-Committee of the Communications/Political Action Committee. This year’s theme was “Kindness is a Renewable Resource.”
District 18 received 6 entries of which 3 were sent to OSSTF for judging at the regional and provincial level. All three entries won their category in Region 3 which includes the following Districts:
District 7, Bluewater
District 8, Avon Maitland
District 9, Greater Essex
District 10, Lambton Kent
District 11, Thames Valley
District 18, Upper Grand
District 23, Grand Erie
District 24, Waterloo.
