Over 150 peo­ple as­sem­bled at the Car­bon­ear Le­gion to watch as 42 lo­cal stu­dents rep­re­sent­ing seven schools were rec­og­nized for their win­ning en­tries in the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion’s Poster and Lit­er­ary Con­test.

The con­test is open to stu­dents from Grades 1-12 and is di­vided into four di­vi­sions — pri­mary (1-3), ju­nior (4-6), in­ter­me­di­ate (7-9) and se­nior (10-12). There are four cat­e­gories — two in the poster cat­e­gory (black and white and colour) and two in the lit­er­ary con­test (poem and es­say).

Branch 23 Car­bon­ear re­ceived over 1,000 en­tries from the seven schools: Car­bon­ear Academy, Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate, Per­salvic Ele­men­tary, Cabot Academy, Tricon Ele­men­tary, Bac­calieu Col­le­giate and Perl­win Ele­men­tary. These en­tries were judged by three re­tired teach­ers in Car­bon­ear and the top three win­ners in all the cat­e­gories re­ceived their prizes Feb 20.

The top three win­ners in each cat­e­gory are also sent into Pro­vin­cial Com­mand of New­found­land and Labrador Com­mand of The Royal Cana­dian Le­gion for fur­ther judg­ing. Among these 42 en­tries, there were win­ners: nine
