Apply for the Bilsland Award
The John W. Bilsland Award is not currently open to applications.
The late John W. Bilsland earned his MA from the University of British Columbia and a PhD from the University of Toronto. John was a Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Alberta and taught for 30 years before becoming a volunteer teacher at SP55+. He was a member of the centre for 30 years.
The class John (Jack) taught produced 21 published senior writers in his 23 years as a volunteer instructor. It is in his honour that this important award is named. He was an inspiration to those he taught and the muse of Strathcona Place writers.
There is a $1000 prize for each of three categories. $700 to first place, $300 to second.
