Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards
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, strengths and potential while celebrating the ways of their people.
Further, the Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards provide the opportunity to celebrate the unique 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 way.
This award is sponsored by the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) and is co-hosted by the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Alberta Education, in collaboration with the College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS), Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA), Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA).
These awards offer the opportunity to celebrate exceptional students nominated by members of their education communities, based on their exemplary leadership, courage, and commitment to their cultures and educational paths.
The award categories are from three regions: North, Central and South, with four (4) awards in each region (12 awards in total) for K-3, Grade 4-6, Grade 7-9, and Grade 10-12.
Nominations deadline is 4:30 p.m. on February 1, 2020.
