CFUW Writing Contest Winners!

Two Carter students were contest winners for the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) annual contest (Aurora/Newmarket chapter).  Founded in 1919, CFUW is a national, voluntary, non-partisan, non-profit, self-funded, bilingual organization of more than 8,000 women in over 100 clubs across Canada. CFUW members are active in public affairs, working to raise the social, economic and legal status of girls and women as well as improving education, the environment, peace, justice and human rights

Anjali, a Grade 12 student, was encouraged by her English teacher to enter the contest. Her story addresses what happens when greed goes unchecked and the consequences of putting human lives on the line in order to fulfil economic interests. Anjali is passionate about issues related to the environment, health, and inequality. She has accepted an offer at the University of Toronto and will study economics and international relations.

Read her story, The Separation 

Gabriel, a grade 11 student and avid reader and writer, was a finalist in the contest for his story “Genesis Amidst Revelations”.
