"As a lover of short stories, it was a great personal pleasure to work with the students who sought to enter the competition. The quality of the thinking, writing and storytelling was always enhanced when the students felt there was a chance of recognition. The Laurier-Stedman Prize was the best thing to happen for young writers in my entire career as a teacher of English."

Janet Franklin, former teacher at Pauline Johnson Collegiate and Vocational School
