Barriere’s young authors presented with Christmas Story prizes

Prizes from the Star/Journal’s Christmas Story contest presented to the four young authors

In November, the Star/Journal asked the kiddos to tell us about their favourite Christmas traditions or create a Christmas story.

Well, we received those stories and have chosen some winners!

Two categories were created, kindergarten to Grade 3 and Grade 4 to Grade 7.

Entrants were required to write a piece no more than 400 words and about one of three themes: what would you do, and why, if you were able to visit the North Pole?; what is your favourite Christmas tradition and why?; and how did the Canada Goose bring Christmas to the barnyard?
