Every year one school across Canada is awarded The Canadian Safe School Network/TD Award For Excellence against LGBTQ Youth Bullying.
This year, we are very proud to say, went to our own South Huron District High School thanks to the work of staff and students in the school's Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA).
The Canadian Safe School Network (CSSN) and TD Bank present this award to a publicly-funded school, elementary or secondary, that has demonstrated excellence in the development, creation or promotion of an in-school initiative to counter LGBTQ bullying. The successful recipient school will be awarded a financial prize of $2500.00 CDN.
Calling all young writers! The Speaker’s Award for Youth Writers invites Ontario youth in grades 7-12 to submit their short stories and personal essays to this writing contest. Original fiction and non-fiction submissions are welcome, and a winner from each of the following three grade categories will be chosen: grades 7-8, grades 9-10, and grades 11-12.
