Aly Marcotte-Willison is a teacher at Meadowlands Public School, here in Ottawa. She has entered a contest for teachers, sponsored by Del Monte. The prize is $750 and a bunch of fruit.
This is the very last week of the contest. Aly’s currently in fifteenth place (out of hundreds), but she needs to make it to the top ten in the next three days. She’s the only Canadian teacher with a chance of winning. If she wins, she’s going to spend the money on books for her classroom, and they’re going to have a fruit-eating party.
I don’t know why it matters so much to me that she win this thing. I never even heard of her until she was interviewed by CBC radio a week or so ago. But I really hope she wins.
So this is my plea to you to take a moment or two to vote for Aly. Voting instructions are here, on Aly’s page. No registration is required.
I know these things are kind of annoying, but I want Aly to win even more than I want to not be annoying. Thanks very much, and I’m sorry.
P.S. If you’d like to see Aly Marcotte-Willison, she’ll be on the CTV 6:00 News tonight.
