Inspired visions and possibilities flowed throughout the many entries submitted for the Honouring Women’s Month contest, a response that made the judges’ task of choosing only three winners per contest category much more difficult, they said.
The Women’s Resource Centre, as part of this year’s annual celebrations, organized the poetry, essay and photo contests. The theme was Inspire Vision, Awaken Possibilities.
‘We would like to thank all the individuals that participated in the contests and the sponsors,’ said WRC Programme Manager Tammy Ebanks-Bishop.
‘Each year the participation level for the contests increases, and these interactive events with the public help contribute to the success of Honouring Women Month.’
The poetry winners each received monetary prizes donated by Orchid Development.
Entries for the essay contest were from the children who participated in the new Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work initiative. The students were asked to write about their experiences while at their parents’ or mentors’ workplace. Winners received gift certificates to Hobbies and Books from the WRC.
Photography winners also received monetary prizes that were donated in the name of local artist Avril Ward.
