The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Foundation (UCCLF) is pleased to announce the recipient of this year’s fourth annual High School Civil Liberties Award writing competition.
Valued at $500.00, the High School Civil Liberties Award is given to the high school student who submitted the highest-quality research essay based on a civil liberties theme, an initiative undertaken in recognition of Ukraine’s Holodomor Famine-Genocide of 1932-33.
This year’s winner is Grade 10 student, Jane Sofia Last of Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, whose essay, “Misconceptions of the Ukrainian Genocide”, was adjudicated to have been the best researched, most convincingly argued and most powerfully written.
The UCCLF would like to congratulate Jane and all the students who submitted an essay. Each participant in this writing competition will be awarded a copy of Into Auschwitz, For Ukraine by Stefan Petelycky for their efforts.
