school se­niors, get ready, set, write! In time for the Hooked on School Days in Estrie, which runs from Fe­bru­ary 16 to 20, Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion’s Make Way For YOUth Estrie pro­gram and its sup­port­ing part­ners, in­vites the grad­u­at­ing class of 2015 to share their sto­ries of over­com­ing chal­lenges for a chance to win an ex­cit­ing prize in the third an­nual Excel in the Estrie es­say con­test. In a few months high school se­niors will be ready to mark an im­por­tant mile­stone in their lives, that of grad­u­a­tion. Class of 2015, we want to hear from YOU in 600 words or less about any chal­lenges you en­coun­tered on your path to sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tional suc­cess and what you did to over­come them. Your story could in­spire oth­ers to keep on the path to suc­cess in ed­u­ca­tion. Not sure where to start? Chal­lenges dis­cussed by past win­ners in­clude strug­gling to pass a par­tic­u­lar sub­ject, deal­ing with a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion, or find­ing your voice. Thanks to the gen­er­ous dona­tions of part­ners in­clud­ing Global Excel Man­age­ment and the Cen­tre des Je­unes Lennoxville Youth Cen­ter, this year’s con­test is open to all high school se­niors in the his­tor­i­cal Eastern Town­ships’ English-speak­ing com­mu­nity at­tend­ing an English lan­guage sec­ondary school who have been ac­cepted to a post-sec­ondary in­sti­tu­tion in the Estrie re­gion.
