Blackville Students Receive Recognition in Remembrance Day Literary Contest

Three Blackville School students who participated in the Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day Literary Contest were recognized for their work.  

Grade 9 students Tally Luce received First Place in the Remembrance Day Writing contest. International exchange student Ana Garcia from Spain received Second Place. Her host sister, Grade 7 student Malia Hallihan, accepted her prize. Grade 9 students Ava Walls received Third Place. 

Local Legion Branch 49 members were at the school on Thursday to present the prizes to the students.

The Royal Canadian Legion, in partnership with schools across the country and with The Legion National Foundation, promote remembrance and support youth education through the annual poster and literary contests. 

Students in Grades 1 through 12 are invited to submit their creative works, with a focus on Remembrance, through their local school to be entered into Legion Branch contests.
