Congratulations on your well-deserved success Awais!

Youth In Arts Program established an amazing partnership with the University of Toronto Hart House Literacy and Library Committee to run a book contest. Newcomer youth had the opportunity to read two books within three weeks to improve their English skills and for a chance to win gift cards. The youth attended three drop in sessions where they also discussed different topics, themes and aspects of the stories that resonated with them. The winner of the August Book contest is: Awais Aziz who read Creative Quest by Questlove and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.
