YTLA or YETI?



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

No, YTLA has nothing to do with the YETI, and I'm not a Bigfootologist. But I've recently learned that yes, the Yeti lives. DNA testing has put to rest the mystery of this "Abominable Snowman" so often sighted in the Himalayas. In fact, a couple of its hairs proved to be a perfect match to a 120,000-year-old polar bear jawbone found in Norway. It seems the Yeti is a large Himalayan brown bear, descendent of the ancient polar bear.

This important news was reported by the London Daily Mail. So there.

Now to demystify the YTLA. Quite simply, it's the Young Townships Leader Award, and it takes its place alongside the Outstanding Townshippers awards. If you'd like to honour someone young or old for making their community a better place to live, why not nominate them? The deadline is August 28.

The YTLA lauds the contributions of leaders between the ages of 15 and 35, who serve as role models to others through their actions. The OT awards honour groups, couples or individuals who have made considerable contributions to their community through volunteerism, social activism, mentoring or philanthropy.

More information is free for the reading at www.townshippers.qc.ca.

Hey, isn't this better than reading about the elections? Young people, read on!

HEALTH STUDIES BURSARIES
Do you know an English-speaking student enrolled in any health or social services program? They may be eligible for financial support from the McGill Health & Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program.

The bursaries fall into two categories. Category 1 is for students in the Estrie or Montérégie-East regions who are studying outside their region. The application deadline is August 31, 2015. Category 2 is for students in the Estrie or Montérégie-East regions who are studying within their region. The application deadline is September 11, 2015.

Students who are awarded a bursary must commit to return to a Quebec region following the successful completion of their studies, and to work for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or related organization. The bursaries are awarded by McGill University and administered by Townshippers' Association. For details, visit topportunity.ca/student-bursaries/, or contact Evelina Smith, Community Information Coordinator, info@townshippers.org, 819-566-2182, toll free 1-877-566-2182.

YOUNG AT "ART"
"I Art the Townships" is the name of an art contest for elementary and high school students in the Eastern Townships English-speaking community. The task is to show your love of the Townships, or what it means to you, through any type of visual artwork that can be exhibited (drawing, painting, mixed media or digital art). Maximum size: 17 x 17 inches. Also submit a short description of the work, along with your name, age, grade level, e-mail, phone number and town. The submission deadline is Thursday, September 10.

The contest is sponsored by Townshippers' Association's Make Way for YOUth project and the Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre (CLC). Deliver your submission to Townshippers' Association at 257 Queen Street in Lennoxville. Or give it to Ms. Gandy at the Alexander Galt Regional High School Or hand it to Kim Fessenden at the Eaton Valley CLC, at the far end of the Pope Memorial Elementary School in Bury. Digital artwork can be emailed to Jenny Ménard, Make Way for YOUth migration agent, at mwfy@townshippers.org, with the subject line "summer art contest."

The pay off? All entries will be exhibited at the Bury Art Show at the Armoury Community Centre in Bury on September 12. Also, a selection committee will judge the art on content, including originality. Three high school students will win prizes totalling $150, and participation prizes will be awarded to elementary school students. Questions? Contact Jenny or Kim on
