The Canadian Canoe Museum Wants You To Name Their Store

There are many themed locations throughout the Canadian Canoe Museum such as Preserving Skills, Origins, Living Traditions Workshop and The Trading Post... but up until now their store has gone nameless. They are now hosting a contest for you to name the store, and if your naming suggestion is selected you could win a $250 Canadian Canoe Museum gift card. The contest closes March 31st, 2015.

Winning Entry "The Reason" In ReBOOT/PtboCanada.com Computer Contest

Congrats to Alex Crowley, 25, who is the winner of our ReBOOT/PtboCanada computer contest for this submission:

 

The REASON

By Alex Crowley:
My mother is the reason. She taught me Right from wrong.
My mother is the reason. Early in my life she taught me our Culture.
My mother is the reason. Achieving a goal she taught me.
My mother is the reason. Study hard and you will find your dreams.
My mother is the reason. Ojibway is the language she taught me.
My mother is the reason. Networking is something I could teach my mom.

Thank you for reading the poem dedicated to my mother. I could help teach her things on the computer that she never learned as a Native child growing up.
