Province Celebrates Duke Awareness Week

Young Nova Scotians who are challenging themselves and making a difference in their communities are being celebrated today, Oct. 15, with a flag raising at Province House, in Halifax as part of Duke Awareness Week.

The awareness week has young people, program participants, leaders, board members, parents and volunteers to take part in events that highlight the great work youth are doing in their communities.

“Community involvement inspires participants to reach their full potential,” said Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Zach Churchill. “The award is a chance to recognize their hard work both inside and outside the classroom.”

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award program promotes community and national development, while participants learn the life skills that lead to personal growth and achievement. More than 4,000 Nova Scotians, age 14 to 25, participate in the program each year. This is the 46th anniversary of the award in Nova Scotia.
