The Student Achievement Awards is a writing and creative arts competition which is open to all public secondary school students in Ontario. Winners are celebrated at the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) through the screening of a video which highlights their artistic and academic work. Below is the Student Achievement Awards Video from AMPA 2019.

Ahead by a Century

In 2019 the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, sponsor of the Student Achievement Awards in honour of Marion Drysdale, is celebrating its 100th Anniversary! As we look back over the last 100 years, we want you to reflect on our past and consider our future as human beings. Our world has changed dramatically over the past century. From women and Indigenous persons being given the right to vote, the atom bomb, space travel, same sex marriage, to the invention of computers and the internet, are we really “Ahead by a Century”? Or is the illusion of progress really just keeping us in the past? Perhaps, with our many inventions and innovations, we really have progressed. But the ways we express – or fail to express – our humanity in our dealings with others still has a long way to go before we can truly think of ourselves as advanced.
