One lucky J.A. Williams (JAWS) High School graduate will get the chance to study at Portage College for free next year. For the second year in a row, Portage College is offering to cover a year's worth of tuition for one graduate from the Class of 2017-18. This contest is a way to say thanks for the JAWS Multimedia department's involvement with live streaming Voyageur hockey games, filming the College's Spirit of Community Partnerships Dinner as well as the Community Art Workshop with artist Joseph Sanchez. The College will select the winner on June 8, 2018.
To be eligible for the contest, students will need to write one of the following: their own press release, bio or story of how Portage College would honour them as an alumni. Students are encouraged to look to their future and imagine their success.
The $3,558 tuition can be applied to any Portage College campus (Lac La Biche, Boyle, Cold Lake, Frog Lake, Goodfish Lake, Saddle Lake or St. Paul). The contest deadline is June 4th and all submissions should be made to Frank Collins, Academic Counsellor at JAWS. The winner will have until June 30, 2019 to use the free tuition voucher.
The college is grateful to those JAWS students who helped with our events and the college sees the positive impact of having the high school students collaborating with the college.
