Local 191 2016 Scholarship Essay Winners

UNIFOR-local191-RGBThe board of Unifor Local 191 is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Scholarship Essay Competition.

Kaitlin Vitt, daughter of Debbie Vitt, Lord Selkirk School Division school bus driver.

Chelsea Sanders, daughter of Carold Sanders, Winnipeg Free Press (Editorial)

Bryan Biancospino, son of Susan Biancospino, Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal (finance)

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.
