Nominate a volunteer for a medal

In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, “Community Builders Volunteer Medals” are being awarded by Rachael Harder, the Member of Parliament for Lethbridge.

The awards will be presented in four categories:

Youth Leader: an individual under the age of 18 who has contributed to making our community a better place through volunteerism.

Community Leader: an individual over the age of 18 who has made significant contributions to the community through volunteerism.

Not-for-Profit Leader: a local not-for-profit organization that addresses social challenges in innovative ways.

Business Leader: a local business that exemplifies what it means to give back to the community.

With a medal presented in each of the four categories in Coaldale, local residents can make several nominations to honour local volunteers.

Recipients will be recognized at an award ceremony in the fall of 2017.

The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m. MST on Friday, June 16, 2017.

Nominations can be made online through MP Rachael Harder’s website.
