Hi Priscilla,
Here is the news about the contest.
… the three judges finally reached their verdict this morning to choose the winners of the first ever “Song for the Salmon” contest. The winner is Anie Hepher, from Cranbrook… The second prize winner is Marcus Smith… there were three runner-ups: Clara Anderson, Peter Blacklock, and Michael Rivar.
Thanks so much for entering the contest.
Sockeye cheers,

The winner receives $500, two passes to the 2011 Roots and Blues festival and a hand sculpted glass trophy by Chuck St. John. The second place winner will receive $250. Both artists will perform their songs at the Salute to the Sockeye Festival on Sunday, October 3rd at 1 pm at Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park. Alexandra Morton the well-known marine biologist and wild salmon campaigner, will say a few words about her work at the festival.


Well that was fun and guess what? After playing at the Adams River Coffee house last week, a teacher from the Celista Elementary School asked for words and music to my song. So grade one and two students are learning my salmon song now. That’s just the best prize ever. Here’s a link to hear it: www.priscillajudd.ca/media/salmon-song.mp3 – it’s dedicated to Alexandra Morton.

    New to your paper. Was at the Salmon Festival on the 10th October, was enjoying the day, taking photos and video memories but missed the song winners performances and only heard Anie Hepher’s Salmon Hymn the following day on CBC’s Daybreak.
    Thanks to your paper and weblink, I got to hear this delightful and worthy song again.
