Student Achievement Awards 2019

Monday October 1 2018

OSSTF/FEESO is pleased to announce the opening of the annual Student Achievement Awards. This year, OSSTF/FEESO is celebrating its 100th Anniversary as an education union in Canada. To coincide with OSSTF/FEESO’s 100th Anniversary, our Student Achievement Awards theme is “Ahead by a Century”. Two bilingual posters and information documents
were delivered to each workplace early in September to promote both the $1,000 provincial prizes and this year’s theme.

Included in each package sent to workplaces was an infographic outlining the application process and a student announcement template to assist in publicizing the awards and generating interest.

We are encouraging students, with the support of an OSSTF/FEESO member who has worked directly with them, to submit an original piece of writing, visual art or media based on this year’s theme, “Ahead by a Century”.

Schools must submit their winning entries to local district offices no later than November 16, 2018. District Offices will then submit the district winning pieces to the Provincial Office by December 3, 2018. Finally, provincial winners will be acknowledged and celebrated at our 100th Anniversary celebrations at the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) in March 2019.

Guidelines and entry forms for the Student Achievement Awards are available online at
