New Skills, New Confidence - Contest Submissions

This document contains the 67 entries received for Literacy Nova Scotia’s fifth annual International Adult Learners’ Week (IALW) contest.

The contest was the culmination of six writing workshops conducted for Literacy Nova Scotia in communities around the province. The contest was also open to learners from English as a Second Language (ESL), workplace, seniors’ and other adult learning programs, in addition to workshop participants.

Beginning with the theme “New Skills, New Confidence,” the participants described the impact that upgrading their education has had on their lives.

Prizes and honourable mentions were awarded in the categories of workplace and workforce programs; ESL, seniors’ literacy, and family literacy; community college and adult high school; and community-based programs. The four winners were honoured at a reception in Halifax where they read from their submissions.
