In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Member of Parliament for Lethbridge, Rachael Harder, is awarding Community Builders Volunteer Awards.
These awards are about recognizing the incredible contributions made to our community by individuals, not-for-profit organizations and businesses throughout the Lethbridge riding.
Roughly 44% of Canadians volunteer their time, totaling two billion hours each year—the equivalent of one million full time jobs. This selfless sharing of skills, abilities and experiences by citizens is an invaluable tool in our society. It not only enriches the lives of others in the community, but also contributes to innovative and sustainable growth.
To celebrate these contributions, you are invited to nominate an individual, not-for-profit, or business that deserves recognition for going over and above to make a difference in our community. Self-nominations will also be accepted.
The awards will be presented in four categories:
Youth Leader: an individual under the age of 18 who has contributed to making our community a better place through volunteerism.
Community Leader: an individual over the age of 18 who has contributed to making our community a better place through volunteerism.
Not-for-Profit Leader: a local not-for-profit organization that has contributed to making our community a better place.
Business Leader: a local business that has contributed to making our community a better place.
Each major community in the constituency will be granted its own set of awards. This means awards in all four categories will be presented in Barons, Coaldale, Coalhurst, Diamond City, Lethbridge, Monarch, Nobleford, Picture Butte and Shaughnessy.
We understand the nominee may not live directly in one of these areas. We ask that you select the area closest to his/her place of residence.
Recipients will be recognized at an award ceremony in the fall of 2017.
The deadline to apply has now passed. Please check back in the fall of 2017 to see who won!
