After long hours of work, the members of the jury of the Awesome Authors youth writing contest selected the winners. It was not an easy task, there is a lot of young talent in Ottawa.
We invite you to listen to our Winner Announcement video to find out who the winners are. The members of the jury, composed of Catherine Austen, Amelinda Bérubé, Éric Péladeau, Karine Perron, and Apollo the Child, wanted to show their appreciation in person and have filmed themselves announcing the winners in each category. The video opens with short messages from the Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association (FOPLA), which we thank for their generous support. Did you know? Each year, FOPLA publishes an anthology of all the winning submissions titled pot-pourri.
Winners will receive an email or a phone call, in the following weeks, to give you more details about the prizes. To discover the winners of the 13-18 years old category, click here.
Thank you all for participating in such large numbers. And a huge thank you to our judges for their time and dedication.
