Winners: 1919 Strike Essays

During the month of May AESES ran its first ever essay contest, to commemorate the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike and its 100th anniversary. There were six one-time essay prizes up for grabs, valued at $500 each, to be awarded to those who best captured the spirit of the 1919 Strike and its lasting legacy.
