Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards
Nominations for the very special Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards are now open.
Formerly known as the Indigenous Shining Student Award, the Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards are intended to recognize First Nations, Métis and Inuit students who model strength and commitment in the pursuit of their personal education path and embrace their own gifts and potential while celebrating the ways of their people.
About: Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards will be presented annually to students selected by the Awards Committee. The Committee will consider First Nations, Métis or Inuit student nominees who attend a school in Alberta, either operated by an ASBA member school board or a First Nations school, who have been nominated by members of their education community based on their exemplary leadership, honour, courage and commitment to their own education path.
Eligibility: Nominees will be First Nations, Métis or Inuit students enrolled in and regularly attending a school that is operated by an Alberta school board or First Nation Education Authority.

This unique award program provides the opportunity to celebrate the exceptional qualities of students who inspire their peers, teachers, education leaders and community members while respecting the agency of other students to do the same in their own ways.
