Ted Chamberlin, University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto, and Professor Lorna Goodison of the University of Michigan and esteemed Jamaican poet, were the 2005 Pelham Edgar Distinguished Visitors in the Humanities. As an acknowledgment of their visit and to encourage the creativity of Vic One students, they have donated a Poetry Prize. This is open to all Vic One students and its value is $300. An announcement informing students of the details for submissions will be sent towards the end of the year.
