On February 4th, 2015 the winners of ASHoF’s Photo Essay Contest were announced.
Mayor Geoff Dawe and Education Committee Chair Kristen Dajia were there to thank the contestants for their participation and to congratulate the winners of the contest.
ASHoF’s Board of Governors were also present to thank and celebrate the contestants.
The 2014 contest was organized by ASHoF’s Education Committee, whose goal is to inspire students of all ages to be physically literate through educational activities connected with the inductees of the Aurora Sport Hall of Fame.
Prizes for the contest are made possibly thanks to the funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
