It’s time to celebrate youth in the community with the Grande Prairie Youth Engagement Awards.
The annual event kicks off this Thursday at the GP Live Theatre, doors open at 6:30.
Cara Jones, the Coordinator of the event says people can vote for nominees online.
“We’ve nominated six businesses and one individual, who will be getting the youth mentor of choice for the awards and we have it on Facebook right now and you can vote through our Facebook page for which organization you would like to see for each category and there’s three categories…Youth Friendly Business, Community Engagement Award and Non-Profit Rock Star of Choice.”
Jones says following the ceremony a youth-produced documentary will premiere.
“After two years of so much work, the Youth Council is ready to premiere their documentary From Redneck to Rainbow: The Rights and Freedoms of LGBTQ+ Youth in Alberta, so it’s a very exciting time for them.
There will also be a concert by East Coast Award nominee blues musician LEEBOY.
