This photo collage by Ashley Sinclair took first place in the children’s category of the first Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Photo Literacy Contest.

Partners for Literacy photo contest winners named

Vickie Clarke took the first place win in the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy’s first annual Photo Literacy Contest.

Vickie Clarke from 100 Mile House took the first place win in the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy’s first annual Photo Literacy Contest.

“Vickie’s photo is of Jeanny Dolinski, a cook at Yummers restaurant reading an order,” says literacy support worker Melody Newcombe.

 

“It is a great example of how we use our reading skills in the workplace. Vickie has won a night’s stay at the Best Western in Kamloops.”

 

 

The second place winner in the adult category is Mandy McLelland from 100 Mile House.

Her photo is of her two children, Jaclyn, 3, reading a story to her older brother Marcus, 6, before bedtime.

This is a wonderful family photo and the two look like they are having a great time, Newcombe says. McLelland won a six-month subscription for the 100 Mile Free Press newspaper.

In the children’s category the first-place winner is Ashley Sinclair from 108 Mile House.  Ashley put a lot of thought into her photos.

The winning photo is a composition that Ashley put together of herself and some of her friends Haley, Martina, Ashley and Robyn titled Literacy Matters.  Ashley has won a gift certificate for Nuthatch bookstore in 100 Mile House.

In the children’s category the second place winner is Mikayla Mosher showing her dog reading a book.

The photo is fun and it shows that Mikayla has patience and a really good sense of humour.   Mikayla has won a gift certificate for Nuthatch bookstore in 100 Mile House.

All the photos were really good. It was very difficult to pick the winners.  You can view all the photos at http://www.caribooliteracy.com.

CCPL’s goal in putting on the contest was to get everyone thinking about how important it is to keep up our literacy skills while having fun.

All the photos clearly show that literacy is an important part of our lives.

“Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo and to the Free Press newspaper for their continued support of the work being done by CCPL,” Newcombe says.
