[twitter]For the 14th year, the Alberta government will present the Great Kids Award to recognize Alberta’s children and youth for their outstanding determination, generosity, and compassion. Investing in youth is one way the Alberta government is investing in families and communities to build a better Alberta.
“The Great Kids Award recognizes young people who do great things – at home, at school and in their community,” said Human Services Minister Dave Hancock.
“Too often we read and hear about youth problems, and we know there are many special young people who make a positive difference and inspire others to reach their full potential and help build a better Alberta.”
Sixteen award winners and all nominees will be honoured with their award at a special ceremony in Edmonton. Award recipients will receive a trophy and prize package from IBM and Fantasyland Hotel.
Great kids aged 5 to 18 can be nominated. The nomination deadline is December 9, 2013 at 4:00 p.m.
For more information and to receive a nomination form, visit www.greatkids.alberta.ca or call 780 415 8150 (toll-free by first dialing 310-0000).
