Grade 11 student's story is CBC Books' First Page student writing challenge finalist

Tarika Stitt's story, Ad Infinitum, is selected from more than 1,500 entries by students across Canada.

Ad Infinitum by Tarika Stitt is a finalist in the 2024 First Page student writing challenge in the Grades 10 to 12 category for 2024.

Students across Canada wrote the first page of a novel set 150 years in the future, imagining how a current-day trend or issue has played out. More than 1,500 students submitted their stories.

The shortlist was selected by a team of expert CBC readers. The winners will be selected by middle-grade writer Basil Sylvester and be announced on June 12. 

Stitt, 16, a student at Nanaimo Christian School in Nanaimo, B.C., writes about AI being used to preserve the voices of dead people.
