Celebrating 15 Years of Honouring Aboriginal Youth

Join us May 1, 2019 as we recognize the talent and accomplishments of Aboriginal youth within the region, and acknowledge individuals and groups who have made a difference in the lives of Aboriginal youth.

We are proud to move into the 15th year of the Northwestern Ontario Aboriginal Youth Achievement and Recognition Awards and are humble and grateful for the support the community has shown for the event.

We can celebrate our youth at these awards thanks to the generosity of sponsorship from companies and organizations such as yours who share the credence our youth are the leaders of today and tomorrow. By committing to sponsorship for our awards dinner, our sponsors are a part of recognizing and encouraging Aboriginal youth along their journey as they look forward to new and innovative ways of learning and planning for their future.

Please save the date. Our awards gala will take place in May 1, 2019 at the Italian Hall in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Attached is our sponsorship package for your consideration. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sharon Smith-Baxter at 807.474.2351. Thank you for your kindness and generosity to support such a worthy event.
