As many of you know, last month I launched a ward-wide Essay Contest for high school students in Gloucester-Southgate ward. The essay contest is a great opportunity for our youth to earn a cash prize for innovative and original essays. This year’s topic is “Local Government Matters.” To increase participation, I have recently decided to extend the contest deadline to Tuesday, November 28. There is no fee to enter, however the high school student must be a resident of Ward 10 (boundaries can be found online or by calling 613-580-2480), and must be in grades 9-12. The prizes are as follows: 1st -$1000, 2nd- $500, 3rd- $250. Completed essays can be submitted via email to diane.deans@ottawa or dropped off at my ward office which is in the Greenboro Community Centre at 363 Lorry Greenberg Drive.
