Canada Day Challenge National Winner Two Years in A Roll!
Fiona Tung, who learnt art from 6 till 18 yrs old in BWP, was announced to have won the National Winner of the Canada Day Challenge this year. We have won two years in a roll!
After last year's winning with Rachel Shen from our school, Fiona participated in this year's theme - "Celebrate Your Future" and got the top and only award in the painting contest. This competition is very challenging. It has NO 2nd or 3rd places but just one top winner. Over 350,000 participants from across Canada have taken up the Challenge since 1987. It is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, along with Canada’s 150th anniversary! So it is particularly meaningful for Fiona to have won this!
