Pay Tribute to a Great Kid!

Nominate a child or youth for the 17th annual Great Kids Award – recognizing them for making positive contributions to their communities in the face of adversity.

This year, the Great Kids Award highlights kids who have made positive contributions while overcoming challenges, such as living with an illness, standing up against bullying or other difficult life circumstances.

“Alberta’s kids deserve recognition because they are leaders to their peers and great examples to all Albertans. I encourage Albertans to recognize young leaders for making positive contributions to their communities in the face of adversity, and standing up for what they believe in.”

Irfan Sabir, Minister of Human Services

 

Nominations can be made by visiting www.greatkids.alberta.ca or calling 780-415-8150 (toll-free by first dialing 310-0000).

The awards are sponsored by Fantasyland Hotel, where the spring awards ceremony is held to recognize the 16 award recipients from the ages of five to 18. Recipients and their families or caregivers also enjoy a night’s stay at the Fantasyland Hotel and receive a West Edmonton Mall attractions pass.

Nomination deadline is December 16, 2016.
