Congratulations to Alexis Pereira for placing 3rd in this year’s COSTI Refugees & Human Rights Child & Youth Poetry Contest!
COSTI Immigrant Services Poetry Contest invited students in Grades 4 to 12 across Ontario to write a poem in line with the theme “Refugees and Human Rights”. The objective of COSTI’s poetry contest is to bring greater attention to human rights and the plight of refugees.
Alexis’ poem ‘The Boat People’ is about a young child’s journey on the open seas.
Alexis will be recognized on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at a virtual ceremony in honour of World Refugee Day.
Congratulations again, Alexis!
