The Métis Nation of Alberta is excited to share details of the Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards. This unique award program provides the opportunity to celebrate the exceptional qualities of students who inspire their peers, teachers, education leaders, and community members while respecting the agency of other students to do the same in their own ways.
The Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Student Awards are intended to recognize First Nations, Métis and Inuit students who model strength and commitment in the pursuit of their personal education path and embrace their own gifts, strengths and potential while celebrating the ways of their people.
Formerly known as “Indigenous Shining Student Award”, the program has been enhanced and expanded and continues to be supported through the collaboration of education partners in Alberta. This important re-imagining of the award has been inspired by the ASBA Indigenous Advisory Circle whose leadership, advice, and guidance has been invaluable in creating this exciting new awards program.
If you know a Métis student who embodies the above qualities, you now have the chance to nominate them. For nomination information and further details on the awards, click here.
