The Student Achievement Awards is a 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. The 1984 Provincial Assembly established the awards in honour of Marion Drysdale, a secretary at OSSTF/FEESO Provincial Office for twenty-two years, for her dedicated work over so many years.
Each year a new theme is determined by the Recognition and Promotion Sub-Committee of the Communications/Political Action Committee.
OSSTF/FEESO invites student writers and artists to submit creative work exploring this year’s theme: One Strong Woman. Judging will be held at the school, District, Regional and Provincial levels. Nine provincial winners will be awarded $1000 each in prizes and will be invited to our Annual General Meeting in March where a video showcasing their work will be screened.
Entry forms, guidelines, tips for Members and students, a poster and more can be found on the Provincial website.
