Ward 14 - Peter Demong

Ward 14 Wordsmith Awards


In their studies, the grade six students of Alberta learn about government, including municipal government. I have been inviting the grade six students of Ward 14 to take part in a writing contest for over a decade now. The goal is to inspire the kind of passion for democracy and public service that my colleagues at City Hall and I share. What I have always said is that if I can inspire just one, then the endeavor has been worthwhile. The inaugural Ward 14 Wordsmith Award class became eligible to vote in 2019, and every year we add another class of voters who know a little bit more about the importance of democracy.

The 2023 Winner!

Congratulations Colton Allen! Colton attends grade 6 class at Chaparral Elementary School. He won with his amazing knowledge and writing skill. He took home the award, a trophy, a Mikael Backlund jersey courtesy of the Calgary Flames, and his entire class visited City Hall for a tour.
