We have two winners!
Unable to choose between the top two videos, we will be awarding a $500 scholarship to two Grade 12 students in Nova Scotia. Our first video scholarship is given this year in memory of Jack Dunlop, who was serving on the Board of Directors at the time of his death. Jack’s advice for board meetings was to keep them short but lively, and these videos reflect that philosophy well.
Congratulations to both Elizabeth Connors of Sydney Academy for “Facts About Sable Island” and Olivia Ledson of Avon View High School for “Sable island”. Both videos have rich content and demonstrate a strong use of individual creativity while educating the viewer about what makes Sable Island such a special place. Their winning videos will be posted on our website later this month along with their reflective essays.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to make and submit a video about Sable Island. We hope you learned new and amazing things about the island in the process.
