Allie Stanley placed second at the provincial level for her Remembrance Day poster. She placed first at the local level, first at the zone level and first at the regional level.
Following in the path of RSS alumni before her, Stanley joins the likes of previous students to win awards in the contest. Past provincial level winners from RSS have included Sami Flemming, Claire Mckay, Amanda McKay and Sally Turnbull.
