Three local youth win Great Kids Awards

A group of 16 youth around the province were recognized with the Great Kids Award. The recognition is for people who work on making Alberta a better place. There were three young people recognized from the Peace region.

Grande Prairie’s Darian Chonkolay was recognized for overcoming tragedy and putting energy toward positive activities. He has been drawn to art, music, and humour to overcome grief while becoming a role model in the community.

Sexsmith’s Keyana Faye Anderson was also recognized for her positive example. The 15 year old was bullied but decided to put efforts to impact others in a good way. She joined a club that focussed on helping people living in poverty around the world. She also started a club called ‘Little Women’ that worked to raise money for girls in Afghanistan. She also started a group that raised money for children with cancer. During Christmas time, she filled boxes of gifts for children of low-income families.

Peace River’s Cordell Gray received an award for overcoming obstacles. The 18 year old was living on his own while attending high school and holding down a part-time job. He is now enrolled in college and works full-time.
