The Center for Epilepsy and Seizure Education in Abbotsford has announced the winners of its Children’s Book Writing Contest.
Alexandra Potter was awarded $1,000 for the artwork she created in her submission, A Special Girl: A Story of Epilepsy.
Amy Guenther received $1,000 for her story Violet’s Special Day.
Both awards were presented at a ceremony Wednesday night at The Reach Gallery Museum.
The contest invited students in the community to create a book – aimed at kids from kindergarten to Grade 2 – about a child with epilepsy who has a seizure and requires first aid.
The winning submissions will now be published and used as a resource in schools to help educate kids about epilepsy.
