Nominations for the Rural Ontario Institute’s Youth Engagement Showcase close on March 2, 2108. Have you nominated a deserving youth from your rural community?
This annual initiative profiles compelling stories of youth taking charge and tackling important issues, highlights the impact youth can have in their communities and demonstrates how different types of rural communities can successfully involve youth in addressing local challenges.
As nominations are gathered from communities across Ontario, a selection committee will identify compelling stories to be profiled on the Youth Engagement Showcase page here on the ROI site, with a photo and description that describes the youth’s accomplishments and the community of support around them. Two youth will be selected to speak at the Parks & Recreation Ontario (PRO) Educational Forum on April 12th, 2018. Four nominees will be randomly chosen to receive $500 (each) that will be directed to their registered charity of choice.
The Youth Engagement Showcase nomination form is available at: www.ruralontarioinstitute.ca/programs/youth-engagement-showcase.
