The city’s Youth Council wants to hear about businesses, schools, and community agencies that play an important role in the lives of teenagers in Grande Prairie.
Acting Youth Engagement Worker Kim Haiste says their first annual awards are an opportunity for 14 to 21 year olds in the city to recognize organizations that are important to them.
“It’s their initiative really, so it’s kind of them being able to go out and say, ‘we really want to recognize the community and recognize the ways we can engage with the community, so I think that for the youth it’s a really good time for them to have a voice in that.”
The deadline for nominations, which can be made on the city’s website, is this Friday at noon.
The awards will be handed out on May 2.
