Orléans Star supports future journalists
10th Annual Student Gala of Excellence
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.
