Assumption Writers Win Multiple Awards in OECTA Writing Contest

2013 Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association Young Authors Writing Competition

With such a high volume of submissions for this year’s OECTA city-wide Writing Contest, it was difficult to choose which pieces would be selected to sent forward to the judging panel. However, after careful consideration, Raiders were well represented in all grade and genres.

The results are in and they are outstanding! Out of all the Catholic High Schools represented and dozens of city-wide submissions, the Assumption students received the most awards and won in multiple categories. Congratulations to these talented winners!
