The winners of the Mayor’s Hunt for History contest in Belleville have been announced.
Mayor Taso Christopher presented the awards at city council Monday night.
The contest, run by the Hastings County Historical Society, encouraged elementary school students to visit the downtown history plaques, installed by the Society.
The students would learn about the major events in Belleville’s history and answer some questions about them.
First place winner Isaac Leavy received a special visit with the Belleville Senators, including four tickets to a game with a behind the scenes tour of the dressing room and other team facilities.
Second place winner Bryon Barrett won a tour of 8 Wing at CFB Trenton to see a small-arms simulator, visit the air traffic control simulator and tour an aircraft.
Also at council this week, Susan Sweet was named 2018 Senior of the Year.
