2016 - 17 Contest - Winning Essays

 This year, winners are: Helen Stoney, Gagetown School and Alyssa Webster, Hampton Hight School
Congratulations to our winners and all of the students who participated. Together, we can make a difference! 

Helen Stoney - "I use the analogy, people aren't soup cans, we're not meant to have labels. People don't deserve to be discriminated against!"

We Will "Make a World of a Difference"....... "I believe that workshops on topics such as assumptions, stereotypes, and discrimination are beneficial because people learn about how easy it is to stereotype/discriminate even when you don't mean to or you don't know you are being disrespectful.  It is very important for children my age and older to learn about the effects of discrimination and assumptions on people in society." - Helen Stoney

Alyssa Webster - "You don't know what's going on in someone's life so why judge?"

We Will "Make a World of a Difference" ...... "People should stop listening to those completely wrong and offensive stereotypes, they're hurtful to more then just the people they're targeted to."  - Alyssa Webster
