Orleans Star - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

In part­ner­ship with its sis­ter pa­pers L’Ex­press Étu­di­ant and La Nou­velle Étu­di­ant, the Or­léans Star hosted the 10th Stu­dent Gala of Ex­cel­lence at the Shenkman Arts Cen­tre, Thurs­day, May 24.

To cel­e­brate the 10th an­niver­sary event, artists Yan Im­bault and Éric Le­clerc gave thigh slap­ping per­for­mances, draw­ing ad­mi­ra­tion from the au­di­ence and lots of laughs. But, as tal­ented as the Or­léans ma­gi­cians were, it was the stu­dents that were be­ing hon­oured for their out­stand­ing achieve­ment in writ­ing for stu­dent news­pa­pers.

Ju­rors awarded more than fifty ar­ti­sans over $16,500 in prizes. The orig­i­nal­ity, re­search and qual­ity of French were the de­ter­min­ing fac­tors to de­cide the win­ners of the gala.
