Do you know an exceptional youth social innovator in British Columbia?
RADIUS and the BC Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation are partnering to deliver the 2017 BC Social Innovation Youth Awards!
The awards will celebrate the accomplishments and leadership of remarkable youth in British Columbia who are tackling tough social issues and creating positive, lasting change for the province. If you know a changemaker under 30 who fits this description, you can nominate them here [closed]. If that changemaker is the person in the mirror, then feel free to self-nominate!
Nominations will be reviewed by a diverse panel of social innovation experts. They will be looking for a clear vision and direction, evidence of a creative approach to problem-solving, and demonstrated growth and impact of nominees’ projects. Nominees’ social innovations can address but are not limited to community development, social entrepreneurship, public health, Indigenous peoples, arts and culture, the environment, and education.
The 10 selected finalists will each receive $1000 in prize money and be invited to accept their award at the BC Summit on Social Innovation in Vancouver on February 8, 2017. Travel and accommodations will be covered for finalists living outside of the Lower Mainland. In order to be eligible, nominees must be residents of British Columbia and must consent to the information they provide potentially being shared with the public.
