Prince Albert, Sk. – The nomination period for the City of Prince Albert’s Terry Fox Award has been extended until the end of the school year and nominations for the 36th Terry Fox Award are now being accepted until June 28.
Since 1981 the City has honoured a young citizen who is a role model, exhibits perseverance and dedication, and who is emblematic of the ideals and traits of the late Terry Fox. This award serves to perpetuate the memory of Terry’s heroic achievement, while acknowledging a local recipient with similar ideals.
The award is for city residents under the age of 21 recognizing good citizenship including exceptional service to school, social, athletic, civic or church institutions. Consideration will be given to those who have shown perseverance and determination, whether of a public or personal nature.
