Know any talented students? Know any students who would like an avenue to express themselves creatively? Know any students who are motivated by MONEY??? Well if you do, you may want to let them know about the OSSTF/FEESO Student Achievement Awards for 2015. The theme this year is Transforming Characters and students are invited to produce and submit an original piece of writing, visual art or a video based on that theme. Winners receive $1000 and are invited to an awards ceremony at the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation Annual Meeting in Toronto in March. We have had several notable winners from Simcoe County in the past and there are bound to be many more potential winners waiting in the wings. You could be the person to bring out that talent. The deadline is fast approaching. Click on the picture above for more information.
