Awards celebrates youth who volunteer in Lacombe and district

Central Alberta Youth Unlimited recently held their annual Leaders of Tomorrow awards.

“It is a program that celebrates youth who volunteer in Lacombe and the district around it,” Dee Clark, youth engagement at Youth Unlimited, said in March 2019.

Nova Chemicals partnered sponsor on this project, which allows Youth Unlimited to have the Awards Night that really celebrates youth in the community.

“After we get nominations, we have a scoring committee look at all of them and they choose one person in each of the four categories,” Clark said. “One person wins and they get the most prizes, but everyone nominated gets prizes, certificates and usually someone from the City will also give them a certificate.

The nominees this year were:

  • Danica McKinstry
  • Skylar Allarie
  • Olivia Graves
  • Emily Mueller
  • Allysa van’t Klooster
  • Matthew Salsbury
  • Lylah Oszust

The winners this year were:

  • Danica McKinstry (age 19-21)
  • Olivia Graves (age 13-15)
  • Emily Mueller (age 16-18)
  • Lylah Oszust (age 6-12)

Lacombe Mayor Grant Creasey was present at the event and Allan Cup Organizer Steve Christie handed out a chequw in support of the Youth Centre.
