Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award Deadline Near

The deadline to nominate Nova Scotia youth who are going the extra mile to help create safe and inclusive spaces in schools and communities is Friday, Dec. 20.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award recognizes students in grades Primary to 12 in public and private schools, and home schooled who are registered with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

The award is for those who are making a positive difference in their schools, communities and province.

“Across Nova Scotia, youth are responding to the challenges they face with extraordinary courage and compassion,” said Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant. “It is important to recognize their efforts and applaud their leadership.

“I encourage educators, teachers and community members to nominate young agents of change in our province for this award.”

Up to 18 awards will be given annually across the eight school boards and Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey (MK) board in Nova Scotia. Two more awards will be presented if the recipient is from a private school or home schooled.

To be eligible, nominees must demonstrate leadership by developing a school or community project or activity. Lt.-Gov. Grant will present the awards at a reception in February.
