2019 Award Photos

Many thanks to everyone who attended our 2019 award ceremony at the Halifax Central Library. It was a wonderful event, and we were thrilled to have so many students and authors in attendance.

We’d also like to express our gratitude to our sponsors and the volunteers across Atlantic Canada who help make this event such a special occasion, and make the Hackmatack program happen.
