Public Safety Essay Contest Winner
Ms. Smith’s essay entitled Reducing Vandalism and Crime in Brant County was selected by a panel of three judges including Brantford Chief of Police Derek McElveny, Superintendent of Education with the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board Trish Kings, and Acting Dean of Laurier Brantford, Kate Carter.
Ms. Smith will receive a $500 prize donated by the Neziol Group to be put towards her post-secondary education.
“It was an excellent submission,” said McColeman. “Clearly Caralyn did her homework.”

The completed essay had to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment and include a cover page with the theme of the essay and contact information including name, address and telephone number.
