Port Nelson Youth Award – EXPIRED
Our church is aware that, in many school settings, a number of bursaries, awards and scholarships exist for students who demonstrate exceptional athletic, academic and often artistic abilities. However, there are few opportunities to recognize students who have made significant contributions toward making schools and communities more inclusive, tolerant and diverse.
Therefore, as a church that greatly values and seeks to live out being inclusive, we are offering an opportunity to recognize a graduating secondary school student.
This $1,000 award will be given annually to a graduating Halton high school student who has made a significant contribution in the school or community in the area of being inclusive of others. This person may have offered leadership in organizing a Gay-Straight Alliance group, or leadership with persons with disabilities, or leadership in any number of initiatives and projects that strive to create a more inclusive school and community.
