3rd Annual Student Excellence Award Winners - West Wind Hardwood

Every school year-end we ask teachers to submit photos of deserving student projects to us for our Student Excellence Awards. Our staff votes on their favourites and the winners receive accolades in our newsletter and gift cards to West Wind. We always see the value in supporting young woodworking talent and promoting skills in the trades.

We had an amazing collection of submissions this year, it was even harder to judge because there were so many levels and variations in projects. All did fabulous work and the students should be proud! Here are the top projects and some honourable mentions:

1st Place: Levi White, Grade 11 Cowichan Secondary School

Recipient of a $100 West Wind Gift Card

2nd Place: Taryn Derbyshire, Grade 9 Crawford Bay Elementary School

Recipient of a $50 West Wind Gift Card

Teacher Matthew Winger nominated Taryn who designed this coffee table with a live-edge spalted birch top, hand cut and chiselled butterflies, and “she went out and cut down the sections for the legs and stringers from our school bush”. Amazing!

3rd Place: Ivan Azucena, Grade 12 Parkland Secondary School

Recipient of a $25 West Wind Gift Card
