Nominations Open for Student Respectful Citizenship Award

Every day students across Nova Scotia make positive differences in their schools and communities and now is the time to recognize them.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award honours students around the province who demonstrate excellent leadership and a strong commitment to creating safe and inclusive spaces in schools and communities.

“Students in Nova Scotia are doing many great things to address bullying and discrimination in their schools and community,” said Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant. “They are taking initiative to make Nova Scotia a safer and better place to live, and they deserve to be recognized for their efforts.”

Now in its second year, the award is given annually to up to 20 students in Primary to Grade 12 in public, private, or home school.

An individual award and a group award can be given to students in each of the eight school boards and the Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey Board. Two more awards can be given to students in private school or who are home schooled and registered with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Nominations must include a description of their role in the project or activity and how it supports the promotion of safe and inclusive communities, and must be accompanied by two references.

Nomination forms have been sent to schools and can be found at http://antibullying.novascotia.ca . The deadline for nominations is Friday, Nov. 28.
