Robert Stewart Essay Competition winners announced

March 15, 2006 — The Montreal Press Club and its participating sponsors have announced the winners of the 2006 edition of The Robert Stewart Essay Competition for students in journalism, communications or public relations at a Canadian university or community college. The subject of this year's competition was "Responsibility".

The first prize of $2,000.00 was won by Terry Woo - a second year journalism student at Ryerson University in Toronto;

The second prize of $1,500.00 was won by Chantel Hamilton - a third year student of Applied Communications in Professional Writing at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton ;

The third prize of $1,000.00 was won by Hubert Lapointe - a third year student in Information et Communications at Université Laval in Quebec City.

The competition is intended to encourage the art of essay writing among a rising generation of communicators and to honour the memory of Robert Stewart - a long-time member and officer of the Montreal Press Club who died in 2003. Stewart was a professional journalist, author and essayist whose work gained him widespread respect both inside and outside the journalistic community. Some of his best writing appeared in the Royal Bank Letter - a popular publication featuring brilliantly erudite essays which reached some one million readers every month in Canada and overseas.

The Robert Stewart Essay Competition is sponsored by RBC Financial Group, the Railway Association of Canada, the Montreal Gazette and NATIONAL public relations.
