I submitted a story about one of my family's adventures in Nunavut. There were three categories for the contest: Adventure, Funny, and Learning. They called to tell me that I won the "Funny" category.
So what did I win?
The story will be in the Yukon News on February 15th. It'll also be on CBC Radio (date and time to be announced, read by none other than... me!
I also got a kangaroo sweater and a canvas bag full of goodies. The goodies include:
- books (neat ones, too)
- a toque
- a reading light
- a mug
- a water bottle
- a box of Worst-Case Scenario survival cards, including a whistle and a carabiner
With loot like that, if you live in the Yukon and the Literacy Coalition holds the competition again, I highly recommend that you enter!
