June 19, 2014 - Three students from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board have been selected as winners of the Young Authors Award through the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association. Ethan Matte, a student at Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary Award won for his non-fiction submission entitled "The Art of Fishing". In the secondary panel, St. Benedict student Nikki Lemieux won for her non-fiction submission entitled "Consumer or Consumed". The final winner is Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School student Shanleigh Brosseau for her short story submission entitled "La Couleur D'Amour". Her short story "La couleur d'amour" was inspired by the approaching celebration of St. Valentine. Shanleigh enjoys writing in her spare time, especially "chapter books" on her IPhone. Her enthousiasm of music and writing is what pushed her to create a very metaphorical short story of a broken heart pendant.
All three award winning submissions can be found in this year's OECTA Young Authors Awards 2014.
Congratulations to all three students for your outstanding writing pieces and we look forward to reading future works!
