Apply now to win $1,000 for a youth project of your choice!

Last year's winner Nathan Hermann

Applications are now open for the Dave Mikkelsen Award for Youth and the City is looking for ideas to support the young people of Chestermere.

"Youth are an important part of our community and we invite them to participate in this great award. We, along with former Mayor Mikkelsen, are looking forward to seeing what the young people of Chestermere come up with,” said Mayor Marshall Chalmers.  

Last year’s winner skated his way to the award with a water filing station at the Skate Park. Nathan Hermann’s idea came to life from a combination of the $1,000 award and other community sponsors.

"It was pretty fun to win the award and to actually be the reason behind the fountain being installed for the community to enjoy,” says Nathan.

He also says it wasn’t too much work and didn’t take long to enter, encouraging others to apply because, “you never know what could happen.”

Individual Chestermere youth ages 12 – 17 or organizations that serve Chestermere youth ages 12 – 17 are invited to apply for the award. Applicants are asked to submit an online application form and explain (in 500 words or less) how they would spend the $1,000 award.

Ideas can be big or small, support activities like sports or education, and involve 5 or 500, so long as they benefit the youth of our community.

For more information about this award and to fill out an application please visit www.chestermere.ca/youthaward. The deadline to apply is December 8, 2017.

The Dave Mikklesen Award was established in 2010 to honour former Mayor Mikkelsen’s dedication to the City and its youth during his 12 consecutive years on Council.
