Student volunteer involvement at any level is eligible. The nominee’s activities may have taken place at any time resulting in a positive and, preferably, lasting impact.

Completing your Nomination Package

Nominations must be submitted in video form, outlining what the nominee has done to contribute positively in the community or your organization and why the nominee deserves recognition. Please briefly explain the nominee’s volunteer activities within your organization, as well as any additional volunteer activities they may perform for other organizations.

What makes a Good Nomination Package?
Award recipients are chosen by a Selection Committee made up of representatives from the presenting sponsor ATCO, the regional participating FCSS offices, and the Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau. When reviewing the nomination packages, we look for things like diversity of involvement, amount of time spent volunteering, creativity of volunteerism, demonstration of leadership and how the nominee inspires the spirit of volunteerism in others.

When completing a nomination package, we suggest that you consult with your nominee to find out where else they are volunteering so that you are submitting a complete perspective of the youth's volunteer efforts. Be sure to include a minimum of two letters of support for your nominee in addition to your letter of nomination - having letters from different kinds of organizations assists the committee members to understand the scope of the youth's volunteer efforts.
