The Union of Ontario Indians and the Anishinabek Educational Institute are looking for Anishinabek students who are interested in submitting a letter to the Minister of Indian Affairs Canada indicating: the importance of your post-secondary education; the successes you have achieved; and, the impact that 'lack of funding' has or will have on your future educational endeavours.
Who can submit a letter: Any Anishinabek student attending or will be attending a post-secondary institute (college or university) in September 2010.
The two winning letters will be hand delivered to Minister Strahl. The UOI education director will draw to determine which winner will receive the autographed framed photo of Sidney Crosby, and the autographed framed photo of Alexander Ovechkin. The remaining letters that are submitted will be packaged and forwarded to the minister on your behalf.
More details at the UOI website.
We have LOTS of 'nish students at FNTI so feel free to forward this if you know one!
