Ladner: Then & Now by Emily Lieuwen
For her winning submission, Emily created a book titled, Ladner: Then & Now. It is a collection of photographs comparing various locations in Ladner 50 years ago to their existing sites today. In summarizing her submission, Emily wrote that, "she chose sites around Ladner that many people pass by on a daily basis because I believe it is important to remember that there is always something that precedes what we see today."
Emily is a lifelong resident of Ladner. In September, she will begin studying biology at the University of Victoria and will also start training for the U-Vic varsity soccer team.
Honourable Mention: Written submission
The History of Annieville by Noah Driscoll
Noah submitted an essay titled, The History of Annieville. It provides a brief history of Annieville, where descendants of some of the original settlers still reside. Noah was inspired to research local history when he celebrated Annieville Elementary School's 100th Anniversary in 2008 and met several generations of Annievillians.
Noah will begin studying Marine Biology at the University of British Columbia in the fall.
Honourable Mention: Digital painting submission
Since 1888 by Tiffany Chan
Tiffany submitted a digital painting titled Since 1888, which honours the contributions of the Delta Police Department to our community over the past 125 years. Her painting was inspired by vintage recruitment posters, but by using digital media, Tiffany notes the importance of technology in today's police work. The evolution of the police department over time, including the addition of the canine unit, is also reflected in her painting.
