Each winner will receive a cheque in the amount of $1,800 to help offset the cost of their post-secondary education studies.
We'd like to thank the members of the Scholarship Committee who judged the entries: Joyanne Pursaga (Winnipeg Sun), Kristin Annable (Winnipeg Free Press), Jeff Hamilton (Winnipeg Free Press).
Local 191 holds this competition every fall. All members, and their children, attending a post-secondary institution on a full-time basis are eligible. Entrants are required to write an essay in response to a question determined by the Scholarship Committee. This year's question was: Explain why unions still need to lobby government to improve workers’ rights.
Watch for the notice announcing the 2017 competition, which will be circulated to all our shops in September.
