The Smith Book Awards have been awarded to 10 schools, thanks to the hard work of Toronto member Eudora Pendergrast. Here is how Eudora describes the awards:
Smith Book Awards are given as a means of recognizing outstanding Grade 11

Besides receiving the award and a lovely book, a student who is honoured as
a Smith Book Award recipient will have her application fee waived should she
decide to apply to Smith, either online or by mail.
The book awards are also a way to raise awareness of Smith as well as recognizing high achieving grade 11 students.
