Congratulations to Grade 12 student, Moira Wilson, whose essay, “The Devil Wears Pessimism: Society Advancement Within the Past Century” has been selected as the winner of the OSSTF Student Achievement Awards in the “Prose and Poetry” category. The essay will now forwarded for adjudication at the provincial level!

Moira’s essay, which she wrote for the purposes of this contest, discusses the concept of “Grumble Theory” as described by Abraham Maslow. She argues that “Canadians have forgotten the progress made over the past hundred years”.

Good luck to Moira in the next round of judging.
