Kovac wins essay contest

Grade 7 student Edward Kovac was selected as one of nine winners of this year’s “Tell Your Story” essay writing contest, sponsored by the Creative Arts Foundation of Canada.
Winners were announced in August 15. The competition is open to all Canadians aged 12 to 17. The winning entries will be compiled in a book to be printed later.
The theme of this year’s competition is “The Quarantine Diaries.” Students were asked to tell a true story based on their thoughts and feelings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participants submitted an essay up to 500 words in length. Winners received a certificate, free art and writing workshops and a gift certificate worth $50.
