The call for nominations for the 2018 Great Kids Award is now open! Sixteen children and youth from around Alberta will be recognized at the 18th Annual Great Kids Award ceremony in spring 2018.

What is the Great Kids Award?

In 1999, the Great Kids Award was launched to recognize children and youth who positively impacted their communities. This year, the Great Kids Award highlights kids for inspiring and changing the lives of others, and helping to build stronger communities. These great kids have also done so while overcoming a wide variety of difficult life challenges, including managing a physical or mental illness, overcoming a difficult living situation and standing up against bullying.

Do you know a great kid in your community? Consider nominating them for a Great Kid Award. Alberta’s great kids deserve recognition because they are examples to all Albertans of what can be accomplished in the face of adversity.
