Prizes for the contest winners

This morning, NLPL Collections Librarian, Jewel Counsens, was interviewed live on CBC Radio’s St. John’s Morning Show to announce the winners of NLLA’s annual poetry contest for Canadian Library Month.

Lambert School, Churchill Falls), Dillon Burden (Ms. Hancock’s grade 2 class at James Cook Memorial School, Cook’s Harbour), Paris Keats (Ms. Butler’s grade 5 class at Centreville Academy in Centreville),  Abigail MacLeod (Mrs. Stapleton’s grade 7 class at Sacred Heart Academy, Marystown) and Nicholas Power (Mrs. Stapleton’s grade 7 class at Sacred Heart Academy, Marystown).

Al l five students win books generously donated by: Creative Publishing, Breakwater Books, Saunders Book Co., Library Services Centre, Raincoast Books and Baker & Taylor/YBP.

This year, we received over 200 entries from more than 15 schools across the province.
