First ever SPACEweek coming up and more SPACE news
Fourth Annual SPACE Writing Competition
Students from all disciplines across the College submitted to the fourth annual SPACE Writing Competition, each offering their own personal interpretation of this year’s theme, Intersections. In total 50 pieces were judged by a jury of faculty—Amanda Beattie (Fine Arts), Nadim Boukhira (Physics) and Andrea Strudensky (English). Entries were evaluated according to originality and depth of thought, style, and connection to the theme. The winners received gift certificates from Argo Bookstore, and the winners and honourable mentions have been published and highlighted in the SPACE web magazine and will also be invited to offer a public reading of their work during SPACEweek.
