2018 Leaders of Tomorrow Awards


The Leaders of Tomorrow Awards program, offered by Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau and presenting sponsor ATCO, recognizes students who have made outstanding contributions to their communities through volunteerism. By recognizing these exceptional volunteers, the Leaders of Tomorrow Awards will inspire other students to give selflessly and become lifelong volunteers.

ATCO Gas and ATCO Electric are proud to present the Leaders of Tomorrow awards and recognize the youths who give their time and effort to enhance their communities throughout the South Peace Region.

Individuals, community groups, educational institutions, and voluntary organizations are invited to nominate young people who deserve recognition for their devotion to helping others.


Awards will be presented at the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon held during National Volunteer Week (April 15-21, 2018). Luncheon date will be announced soon.

Each award recipient will receive a Leaders of Tomorrow Awards trophy, a certificate, cash award of $100, and a $100 donation to the charity of their choice.

Criteria for Nominations

The Leaders of Tomorrow Awards Nominee must:
♦ Exhibit dedication and excellence in any field of volunteer work (school, community, social activism, church, athletics, and/or fine arts, etc.); and
♦ Inspire the spirit of volunteerism in others and exhibit leadership in their volunteer activities.
♦ Between the ages of 13 to 18

♦Youth must reside in GPVSB Service Area, which is The City and County of Grande Prairie, extending North to Grimshaw, East to Valleyview, South to Grande Cache and West to  the Alberta-BC Border.

Student volunteer involvement at any level is eligible. The nominee’s activities may have taken place at any time resulting in a positive and, preferably, lasting impact.

What makes a Good Nomination Package?

Award recipients are chosen by a Selection Committee made up of representatives from the presenting sponsor ATCO, the regional participating FCSS offices, and the Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau. When reviewing the nomination packages, we look for things like diversity of involvement, amount of time spent volunteering, creativity of volunteerism, demonstration of leadership and how the nominee inspires the spirit of volunteerism in others.

When completing a nomination package, we suggest that you consult with your nominee to find out where else they are volunteering so that you are submitting a complete perspective of the youth's volunteer efforts. Be sure to include a minimum of two letters of support for your nominee in addition to your letter of nomination - having letters from different kinds of organizations assists the committee members to understand the scope of the youth's volunteer efforts.
