Great Kids Award 2017
Thank you to those who have nominated a young person for the Great Kids Award. The call for nominations has now closed. Nominees will receive certificates in the spring of 2017.
What is the Great Kids Award?
The Great Kids Award was first launched in 1999 to recognize children and youth who positively impacted their communities. Since its creation, 258 children and youth have been recognized. Alberta’s great kids deserve recognition because they are examples to all Albertans of what can be accomplished when also experiencing life’s challenges.
This year, the Great Kids Award highlights kids who have made positive contributions despite hardships. These include managing a physical or mental illness, standing up against bullying or overcoming other difficult life circumstances. These young people are recognized for going above and beyond for others and their communities.
