Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation
District 13 Durham

Student Achievement Awards

Each year our Federation hosts a writing and creative arts competition open to all public secondary school students in Ontario. Intended to encourage the intellectual development of our students, this year's Student Achievement Award theme is Ahead by a Century.

Schools must submit their winning entries to local district offices no later than November 16,
2018. Provincial winners will be acknowledged and celebrated at our 100th
Anniversary celebrations at the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) in March

Guidelines and entry forms for the Student Achievement Awards are available online at
