PWL Photo Contest Winners

October 28th, 2016

Congratulations to Ira Borromeo for this prize winning photo from Points West Living Heritage House in Vegreville. Ira is a food services care partner at Heritage House and captured this beautiful moment with resident Alexandra Chorney and LPN care partner, Samia. Ira included the following quote with his entry: "There are hundreds of languages around the world, but a smile speaks them all" (Anonymous). 

There were so many great photos entered, that the judges (including Executive Assistant Kallie Dahl and PWL-News Editor Barbara Sutherland) decided to award three ‘runner-up’ prizes. Those winners are:

     • Lorraine Skinner, for her delightful “Grandma 90” birthday Blue Jays jersey photo of PWL Wainwright resident Pauline Delemont
     • Christine San Andres, for her ‘selfie’ collage of getting her hair braided by PWL Peace River resident Anne Kuran
     • Jenn Dixon, for her water-play photo of PWL Stettler resident Bryan blowing bubbles for a beach-ball toting toddler.

Ira wins a prize package valued at $100 (including a $50 gift card), and runners up will each receive PWL gift packages.

Please visit our Flickr photo gallery to view the prize winners and those receiving ‘honourable mention’.
