I Love Barrie Contest Winners
Posted on 03/16/2022

From December 10th, 2021 to February 28th 2022, the City of Barrie ran their annual I Love Barrie contest. Now in its sixth year, the contest calls for youth to share why they love Barrie in a variety of formats. The City saw written submissions, photos, artwork and classroom entries from both elementary and secondary schools.

We are excited to announce that two categories were won by Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board students.

Mr. Kwiatkowski’s Grade 8 class from Saint Gabriel the Archangel Catholic School in Barrie won for their written piece, The City of Kindness

Saint Gabriel Class winner

In the Photo Category, William Howcroft - a Grade 10 student from St. Peter’s Catholic Secondary School in Barrie, won for his stunning waterfront snapshot.

St. Peter's student winner

All winners will be guests at an upcoming Barrie City Council meeting. Their pieces will also be shared in The Barrie Advance later this month and be featured on the City's flag series this spring.

Congratulations to all winners! See all winning submissions on the City of Barrie website.
