The first Voice Writing Contest was a great success. Not only did it draw a great deal of interest — both from those who found the time to submit, and those who told me they wished they could have — but the quality of submissions was exceptional. In particular, competition was very strong in the fiction category – so much so that the judges chose to add two honourable mention prizes, for which there was a provision.
The grand prize winner in each category will each be awarded a $300 scholarship, while the honourable mentions will receive Voice logo fleece jackets.
And the winners are:.
Non Fiction Category:
Grand Prize – Wayne E. Benedict – Saskatchewan
Grand Prize – Greg Godard – Alberta
Honourable Mention – Heather Jane Doherty – New Brunswick
Honourable Mention – Bill Pollett – British Columbia
The Voice would also like to thank our hard working judging panel, who kindly volunteered their time to make this contest a success:
Bill Thompson – AU English Tutor
Virginia Gillese – AU English Tutor
Shirley Barg – AUSU VP External
All entries were sent to the judging panel with all identifying information removed, and were identified by a code number.
Thank you also to everyone who entered and made this contest a great success.
Read the winning entries in this issue, and read The Voice next week for the two honourable mention selections.
