Je prends ma place! Winner
The Forum Jeunesse Estrie is proud to announce this year’s winner of the sixth edition of the Je prends ma place! Contest: Joanna Bateman. Ms. Bateman is one of the founders of the Tierra del Fuego project in the Borough of Lennoxville.
Determined to offer a healthy environment where people can learn, get involved and discover talents and interests, Joanna began this community project in 2008. Tierre del Fuego has had much impact in the community and has served hundreds of people, especially in helping students to see a reason for their schooling. She also established a link between Bishop’s University students and the Townshippers’ Association, encouraging students to get involved in the community. She also supervises the community garden, organizes community dinners and animates youth activities.
The winner of the Je prends ma place! contest receives a grant of $1000 and participates in a special event at the Quebec National Assembly.
