<p>The Canadian War Museum in Ottawa was set up to foster the study of Canadian military history and the effects of war upon the nation.  They offer prizes to graduating high school students who wish to continue their studies in history.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They offer five prizes annually for works that are either text, art, web-design or Audio/visiual.  My son submitted a story and won an award.  Winners names appear at a special display in the museum.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This year's theme was on "Peace", and you can read oby's story <a href="http://www.warmuseum.ca/app/DocRepository/12/education/history_award/methot_e.pdf" target="_blank">here.</a></p>

<p>That was from the son who isn't normally the writer?  Damn.  I'm glad he won an award, that was fine writing.</p>

<p>Great writing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was in that museum a week ago and absolutely loved it.  I looked for stuff applicable to an uncle that died and my grandmother, I wish I had known to look for the Boybarians work.</p>

<p>He's back from the trip to the States.  He came in second in the speech tournament.  Kids from across the US, Canada, Europe...  but he couldn't give it in the UN because that Windsor woman was there that day.</p>
