The BC Hydro Power Pioneers are looking to reward a graduating Quesnel student who has helped the community.
They’re going to be giving $500 to someone who has excelled in community service.
“We’re looking for students who have made outstanding contributions in their local community for a considerable amount of time or have initiated, organized or contributed significantly to a one-time project,” the application reads.
Applicants must fill out an online form, submit a 500 word essay sharing their accomplishments and provide a reference letter from community organizations they have worked with and a teacher or other person from their school.
The award is given out to BC residents who will graduate in 2021, and must be submitted before Wednesday, March 31.
Quesnel resident Cassidy Nikirk won the award in 2020. The nursing student received her award at the end of a grabber stick to practice proper social distancing.
