Great Kids Award

November 8, 2018 - The nomination period for the Alberta government’s 19th Annual Great Kids Award is now open, providing all Albertans with an opportunity to recognize remarkable young leaders.

Since 1999, the Great Kids Award has recognized remarkable children and youth who positively impact their communities. These great kids have made a difference while overcoming challenging circumstances including managing a physical or mental illness, a difficult living situation or standing up against bullying. These great kids deserve recognition because they are examples to all Albertans of what can be accomplished in the face of adversity. Next spring, the Alberta government will recognize 16 young Albertans with a Great Kids Award during a ceremony at Fantasyland Hotel in Edmonton.

Do you know a great kid in your community? Consider nominating them for a Great Kid Award!

Most recently, 7-year old Izabelle Gaskarth from Brookwood School was among the 2018 award recipients.

Nominations are open until 4 p.m. on November 30, 2018.
