The nomination period for the 2019 Great Kids Award is now open! Sixteen children and youth from around Alberta will be recognized at the 19th Annual Great Kids Award ceremony in spring 2019.
What is the Great Kids Award?
Since 1999, the Great Kids Award has recognized remarkable children and youth who positively impact their communities. These great kids have made a difference while overcoming challenging circumstances, including managing a physical or mental illness, overcoming a difficult living situation, and speaking out against bullying.
