Okotoks Premier Volunteer Recognition Event!
We are now accepting nominations for the 2017 Leadership Awards!
THE 2017 NOMINATION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO: Monday, March 20, 2017
Volunteerism creates a vibrant community, and each year we recognize this with The Annual Leadership Awards, in conjunction with National Volunteer Week. Established in 1996, this community-focused volunteer recognition event celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of outstanding volunteers in our community. The awards promote the value of volunteering and serve as an inspiration for others to embrace community involvement and become volunteers.
- Leaders of Tomorrow recognizes outstanding young people who have made exceptional contributions and demonstrate leadership, energy, commitment, character and devotion to helping others.
- Heart of Okotoks Award recognizes individuals, families, groups and businesses who demonstrate leadership, passion and commitment toward creating a healthy and vibrant community, and who serve as inspiration to others.
Be a champion for your favourite volunteer(s). Nominate someone who inspires you and is making a difference in our community.
The Leadership Awards would not be possible without the ongoing commitment of our partners: Okotoks Rotary Club and the Western Wheel. TELUS are a generous sponsor for this event.
Everyone nominated for a Leadership Award receives recognition. All nominees will receive a nomination certificate and package, and will have their name published in the Okotoks Western Wheel during National Volunteer Week. All nominees will also be invited to purchase a ticket for the event! All nominees will receive an invitation to volunteers at the 2017 Seniors Celebration.
Recipients of the award will be invited to attend the Leadership Awards event as a special guest. At this event they will be celebrated. Recipients will also be invited to attend a pre event meeting!
The 2017 event will also include Ted Menzies as the guest speaker and the presentation of the Okotoks Rotary Clubs Integrity Award.
*Exciting Opportunity!* The High School recipient of the Leaders of Tomorrow Award will also receive a $500 bursary to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards in Canmore. This is a three day conference and an amazing learning experience.
