The Compass - - ORTHTE -

Ap­pli­ca­tion are now be­ing ac­cepted for the 2012 Miss Achieve­ment New­found­land and Labrador Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram.

The pro­gram is open to young women be­tween the ages of 13 and 18 and from Nov. 1-4, those who ap­ply will gather in St. John’s to show­case their bril­liance and to com­pete for mul­ti­ple mone­tary schol­ar­ships.

“Our man­date is to cre­ate an en­rich­ing per­sonal de­vel­op­ment ex­pe­ri­ence, high­light our em­pha­sis on schol­ar­ships and pos­i­tively im­pact the lives of this prov­ince’s most ma­ture, ded­i­cated and cre- ative young women,” said Achieve­ment co-di­rec­tor Caines in a re­lease.

Each par­tic­i­pant in the pro­gram will be given to the op­por­tu­nity to en­hance their self-es­teem, pub­lic speak­ing and in­ter­view skills.

Since its in­cep­tion in 2006, Miss Achieve­ment New­found­land and Labrador has awarded nearly $50,000 in schol­ar­ships to out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als.

The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions for the pro­gram is mid­night, Sept, 30. Ap­pli­ca­tions can be found at www.mis­sachieve­ment.com. Miss Lori

LES­LIE LEV­ELS SHED – Cory Day cleans up the mess of de­bris left by trop­i­cal storm Les­lie, which turned an old shed on the water­front in Dildo into kin­dling. Day said the two-storey shed orig­i­nally be­longed to his grand­fa­ther and was built about 60 years ago. The Sept. 11 storm also caused some dam­age to other wharves and prop­erty around the Trin­ity South community. Wind and spray pounded the heavy ar­mour stone sea­wall, which pro­tected the boats inside the marina from dam­age. Dildo res­i­dent Ger­ald Smith said it was the worst wind­storm he’d seen since Hur­ri­cane Ione in Septem­ber 1955.
