It's obvious Alisdair is delighted in the above photograph. He's learned that "hard work pays off" ~ and some times not quite the way you think!
Friday evening, Alisdair received a Scholarship Certificate at the Battlefords Kiwanis Music Festival's "Gala Awards Concert" for 2011. The Certificate says the award was for the "Battlefords Kiwanis Music Festival Junior Speech Arts Test Piece." A cheque for $100.00 accompanied the certificate.

Being new at the Music Festival scene, we weren't sure what a "Test Piece" actually was. Apparently they are classes where the participants are given a specific poem or passage to perform. The award, then, was for "Sacred Reading" (Matthew 25:31-40). He received a mark of 89% for that particular entry.
