Steven Korobanik is Principal at Obishikokaang Elementary and organizer of Chief for a Day essay contest in Lac Seul. He created the contest to help students understand the important role played by the Chief in the community, and how the political system works. Lac Seul Students from Grade 3 to 8 wrote essays of 250 words or more detailing what they would do if they were Chief of Lac Seul which is made up of Frenchman's Head, Kejick Bay and Whitefish Bay. The competition has been running for the past 3 years. This year's winner is grade 5 student Mahoney Trout, who will spend Wednesday April 19 as Chief for a Day! Listen for our interview with Mahoney, Steven, Milton and Chief Bull just after 8 on Wednesday's Q Morning Show. Congratulations, Mahoney!
