Congratulations to all those who Entered The Nation’s First Cree Youth Essay Contest.
All the entires were excellent, which made it hard to choose the winners. But we narrowed it down to the top six finalists.
Rodney Hester, Age 21, of Nemaska, won our Grand Prize with his fictional essay called “Dreamcatcher.” Rodney wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Montreal to see a concert.
Runner-up prizes Including a CD player and CD’s go out to Betty Stewart of Wemindji, Lois Blackned of Waskaganish, Clifford Mayappo of Wemindji, Joseph Moar of Waskaganish, Harry Weistche of Waskaganish.
We will be printing all six prize-winning essays and more in The Nation, starting with Rodney’s (see page 13 of this issue).
* All entrants names have been put down for a Nation T- shirt, (as soon as we can make some, ed.)
