Entries Open: March 10 – April 30
Valerie Connor is best remembered as a local teacher and active community member who was also a volunteer at the Leacock Museum. Val was a part of groups such as the School Belles and the Orillia Fine Arts Association, and in her free time she was also a talented painter and poet.
Val’s late husband Harry Connor created the Connor Prize to honour Valerie, whose love of the arts and people touched many lives. This tribute to K. Valerie Connor carries Val’s love for the arts into the community.
Join us for a reading at the Leacock Museum to hear the winners read the Adult, Student and Elementary poems.
