The Halton Region Museum, together with the Halton District and Halton Catholic District School Boards presented Visions Canada Awards to 30 award-winning projects last week. The program is organized by the school boards and the Halton Region Museum. Each year, a committee from each Halton School Board selects the award-winning projects. The projects may be of an artistic or academic nature in either of Canada's official languages, and are assessed on their clarity of expression, creativity, depth, relevance to Canada and independence of student work. Visions Canada was initiated over 25 years ago when the late Catherine McMartin, a Halton teacher, left an endowment for Halton District School Board students. She also bequeathed a number of artifacts to the Halton Region Museum. Halton Catholic District School Board awards are given in honour of Robert O'Brien of Burlington, who has devoted his life to Catholic education in Halton as a board trustee and chair. Local Halton Hills winners are: Kindergarten ­ Grade 3 · Cameron Downey, Inuksuk (painting), Grade 2, Silver Creek Public School · Teana Graziani, Aboriginal Longhouse (model) Grade 3, Holy Cross Catholic School Grades 4-6 · Kathleen Brown, The Whale (aboriginal art), Grade 6, St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic School · Arshdeep Gill, Meet the Group of Seven (report), Grade 6, Stewarttown Public School Grades 7-8 · Stacey Bell, The Kennedy Family (powerpoint), Grade 7, St. Brigid Catholic School Group awards · Haley Besworth,Kaitlyn DeJesus, Carly Thomas, Feliz Tupe, Rush to Fortune (board game), Grade 8, Stewarttown Public School
