Gordon Smith Youth Environmental Stewardship Award Nomination
Now is your chance to nominate an amazing youth for the 2022 Gordon Smith Youth Environmental Stewardship Award!
About the Gordon Smith Award:
Gordon Smith was dedicated to serving people and the environment and was one of the finest people many of us ever met. He was passionate about stream and wetland stewardship and very active in conservation projects in Aldergrove and Delta.
To inspire others to follow his path, his friends, family and colleagues at Metro Vancouver Regional Parks initiated the “Gordon Smith Youth Environmental Stewardship Award.” This endowment fund provides an annual award to youth for their contribution to hands-on conservation in the region. Supported by private donors, the fund is administered through the Pacific Parklands Foundation.
Young people, aged 12-18 living in the Metro Vancouver Region who demonstrate passion and involvement in environmental conservation and stewardship may be nominated for this award. Those of us who knew Gordon or had the opportunity to work with him are content in the knowledge that he would be pleased to see his passion and inspiration being passed on to the youth of the Region through this award.
Every year, this award provides a bursary for youth age 12-18 who have contributed to environmental stewardship through their volunteer efforts. This year, both a $1,000 and $500 bursary will be awarded.
The recipients demonstrate leadership in conservation and inspire other young people to get involved in environmental work.
