Our island’s history is rich in stories and song about hard work, survival and of course the call to our own ancestors to settle here. Once a thriving industrial community, we need not look too far to see the impact of the steel industry or the mining of coal on even our present day culture. Sydney exported the best rails in the world and the tons of coal transported on these rails reached to the far ends of the global world. Our society is trying to create awareness among our youth of the importance of the rail and the possibilities for its future. Even though most of our youth have probably not even experienced being on a train, you need not look too far to see a rail bed or a rail crossing. You will be the ones to oversee future economic development in our communities and hopefully once again see the trains carrying goods to the rest of the world, and who knows……maybe even get to ride the train once again. We can only dream of the possibilities.

The Scotia Rail Development Society is sponsoring a poster contest for students at the grades three, four and five levels in the CBVRSB. The students are asked to create a standard letter-sized poster and the winning design will be used as the Society’s future poster art. A prize will be awarded.
