Jerrett Enns Awards
The Jerrett Enns Awards are two awards of excellence for high school student writing in poetry and prose named in honour of Victor Jerrett Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild from 1982 to 1988. A third award for art was discontinued in 1996. Today, the poetry and prose awards continue to be presented, as well as an Honourable Mention in each category.
The Currie-Hyland Prize is awarded for excellence in poetry to a high school writer living outside Regina or Saskatoon. This award was established in 1992 by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild and the literary community of Moose Jaw as a tribute to Robert Currie and Gary Hyland in recognition of the literary excellence they achieved in their many published works and to acknowledge their commitment and generosity to their students and fellow writers.
Windscript has been publishing the best of Saskatchewan high school students' literature since 1983. Windscript was created by Victor Jerrett Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild from 1982 to 1988. His enthusiasm and determination kept the magazine alive in its first two years until permanent funding could be found. For twenty-one years the magazine was distributed free to all high schools and libraries in the province. By 2004 funding sources were no longer available and the print publishing of the magazine was replaced by electronic versions through the Guild’s website. In 2011, due to popular demand from students and teachers, as well as offering it online, the Guild managed to publish this magazine for promising young writers in print form once again.
The Jerrett Enns Awards are awards of excellence named in honour of Victor Jerrett Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild from 1982 to 1988. It was Victor who first presented the idea of Windscript to the Board of the Guild in 1983. His enthusiasm and determination kept the magazine alive in its first two years until permanent funding could be found.
The Currie-Hyland Prize was established as a tribute to Robert Currie and Gary Hyland in recognition of their literary excellence, commitment, and generosity to students and fellow writers. The prize is awarded for excellence in poetry to a high school writer living outside Regina or Saskatoon.
