The Brett Meredith Award for Distinction in Writing is awarded to a grade 12 student who demonstrates a passion and aptitude for creative writing.
This award was created in 2017 in memory of Brett Meredith, a well-respected English and Creative Writing teacher at Alpha Secondary.
To be considered for the award the student must have:
- Been enrolled at Alpha Secondary for their grade 12 year
- Been admitted to a post-secondary institution for the upcoming school year.
- Been a strong, positive member of the school community (ex. Grad Council, student council, clubs, sports teams, etc.)
- Demonstrated a passion and aptitude for creative writing (ex. short stories, poetry, script writing, narrative essays)
One scholarship of $1000 will be awarded to a graduate of Alpha Secondary annually. Funding for the scholarship will come from PAC fundraising. Students are asked to complete an application which will include a cover letter and a sample of their own creative writing to Alpha’s Scholarship Chair, Ms. McChesney, in room A100 by Wednesday, April 21st. The writing sample can be of any genre and any length. Angela Meredith (Brett’s wife) will choose the winner.
