The River Rat Writing Prize seeks to provide a creative outlet and authentic audiences for students. We believe that the student work produced at Huron deserves to be celebrated within our school community and with the community at large. Winners will receive public acknowledgement and financial reward for their inspiring work. We encourage all students to enter the competition.
