The Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards are intended to recognize First Nations, Métis and Inuit students who model strength and commitment in the pursuit of their personal education path and embrace their own gifts, strengths and potential while celebrating the ways of their people.
Further, the Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards provide the opportunity to celebrate the unique qualities of students who inspire their peers, teachers, education leaders and community members while respecting the agency of other students to do the same in their own way.
This award is sponsored by the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) and is co-hosted by the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Alberta Education, in collaboration with the College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS), Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA), Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA).
Nominations must be received by 4:30 p.m. on February 1, 2020. Nomination packages may be submitted by email to ASBA’s Indigenous Relations Coordinator, Layla Dumont, at email@example.com or by regular mail to:
