Chrisy Oh is a SAIT Library Tech diploma student and is currently at Hillhurst in the Learning Commons completing her first practicum. assignment. She will be here until January 26, and then she is back to SAIT for 9 weeks followed by another practicum at a different library.
During her stay here, Chrisy has tried every Learning Commons task including making a bulletin board with a book display as you see here. She has been a great help checking in and shelving the many, many books Hillhust students read! We have enjoyed having her here and hope to see her again soon!

We had 162 entries this year, which means more than half of the Hillhurst students entered, which is just wonderful! For the judging, a team of Hillhurst teachers and Laura, our resident artist, created a short list of bookmarks for each class’s entries and the short list for each class was given to another class to choose a winner. The entry with the second highest number of votes was deemed the runner-up. I think you’ll agree we have some amazing artists at Hillhurst!!
Everyone who entered the contest will receive his or her laminated bookmark and a small prize. We will be
featuring winning bookmarks as the giveaway bookmark in the learning commons. There will be 2 featured
Thanks to Laura and the team of teachers for doing the first round of judging, to the teachers and students for doing the second round of judging, to Carol for laminating all the bookmarks and of course to all the students who entered the contest and shared their artistic talent with everyone.
