Nominations are now open for the Government of Alberta’s 2014 Great Kids Award.

For the 14th year, the Alberta government will present the Great Kids Award to recognize Alberta’s children and youth for their outstanding determination, generosity, and compassion. Investing in youth is one way the Alberta government is investing in families and communities to build a better Alberta.

“The Great Kids Award recognizes young people who do great things — at home, at school and in their community. We want to celebrate the many special young Albertans, who make a positive difference and inspire others to reach their full potential and help build a better Alberta,” said Dave Hancock, Minister of Human Services.

Sixteen award winners and all nominees will be honoured at a special ceremony in Edmonton. Award recipients will receive a trophy and prize package donated by IBM and Fantasyland Hotel.

Great kids aged 5 to 18 can be nominated. The nomination deadline is Dec. 9 at 4 p.m.
