Celebrating Adult Learners' Week 2013, April 6 – 14: Learning Makes a Difference (2013)

This document brings together more than 80 submissions received for the sixth annual International Adult Learners’ Week (IALW) contest, organized by Literacy Nova Scotia (LNS).

The contest was the culmination of a series of six writing workshops conducted for LNS in communities around the province. As well, the contest was open to learners from English as a Second Language (ESL) courses, classes for seniors, and workplace education programs.

The theme for 2013 was “Learning Makes a Difference.” The writers share stories of new opportunities open to them through learning. One man describes confronting his difficulties with mathematics and overcoming the anxiety that had plagued him since high school.

Winners were chosen in the categories of workplace /workforce education; ESL, seniors’ literacy, and family literacy; community-based programs, Levels I and II; and adult high school, Nova Scotia Community College, and community-based, Levels III and IV.

The four contest winners of the contest were honoured at a reception in Halifax, where they read their submissions.
