IDERD Essay Winners
April 13, 2015
March 21st marked the United Nations' International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. To commemorate this day, the Association for New Canadians held an essay contest for junior and senior high school students. The theme for the 2015 competition was "Racism and Discrimination," and students were encouraged to use this theme in their submissions. The ANC would like to congratulate Monique McGrath, a grade 8 student at Holy Trinity High School, and Israel Mohammed, a grade 11 student from Holy Heart of Mary High School, for their winning essays. Monique and Israel were presented with a cash prize by Ken Walsh, and their essays are shared with you here.
