Zach is a hard worker and a excellent baseball player. He plans to attend SanDiego Christian Collage, and has received a 30% scholarship.

He means so much to be as a role model, and a big brother and i just want to do something to help him out with his dream of playing professional baseball. He is so kind and whenever you see him he has a smile on his face and is willing to help with whatever. I hope that this reason was good enough because he deserves to be happy and doing the thing he loves for as long as he can!

Alexie helps autistic children learn about entrepreneurship. Alexie also cleans up the local environment and helps to divert waste!
Alyssa deserves this scholarship because she includes others so everyone feels that they can do whatever they set their mind to. When she was in grade 6 she was extremely sick and was told by doctors she would never play sports again, and should become a librarian. She went on to lead her Jr. High basketball team to 2 league championships and now dances with the Viter Ukrainian dancers. She wants to use her education to open a training academy for young injured athletes, so they have someone who will tell them “You can do it, we’ll get you there.”

I would love to nominate my daughter Nicole. She is dedicated to her studies and has been an honour student every year of high school. She has won many awards every year for her hard work. Nicole gives her time to her church activities and fundraisers and volunteers for community events every year. She works part time at a local resort but still finds time for family.

I met Natalie 4 years ago while she was completing her teaching stage at a Laval high school. She was so dedicated to the students she was teaching and the community she was involved in. She would spend hours after work making sure that community events and projects with the students were organized. She worked tirelessly on helping the needy students of the school have food to eat during the day, she organized many charity functions to raise money for these family and at the end of the day she never asked for anything back. I know she has taken the steps to take even a harder role within the community by going back to school to get her Masters in administration. This scholarship and money would help her achieve her goals 🙂 I am proud to call her my work colleague and my friend. Thank-You for the great chance to win this amazing prize 🙂

This organization has allowed Nelson to volunteer at numerous events over the years while his brother participates with other Special Olympics athletes. Nelson’s passion for this organization has now expanded to many of his friends who also now volunteer at events around Toronto and Hamilton.

Ravynne is one of the most responsible young women I have ever met. Ravynne has always worked hard and has always obtained great grades. She has had honours since grade nine. Ravynne has always worked hard to achieve her goals. One of her most exciting moments was earning her way to play rugby in Europe with the High School Team & she had to keep her grades up, practice hard and work hard to get there. Ravynne has always worked hard.
Rebecca works very hard every year to maintain great grades in school and expand her knowledge.
Tanner is a great individual and is always focusing on how he can help others. He plays on a hockey team, works with the children at Variety Village in Toronto, and works as a assistant hockey coach with a young girls hockey team. Tanner is a fantastic young man.
Robert started off as a shock quiet kid who after the death of his father decided he wanted to make a difference in the medical world and instead of willowing in his sorrow he studied hard and got into McGill medical school when no one else was. He is trying to make a difference in his city and community. He has a long road ahead of him when there are not many jobs offered and he is still willing to go to the extra mile. This is a child who has inner strength that no one thought was there.
My son is studying Medicine for one year and finished with success. He spent his summer deep in books, late nights, and weekends studying for his exams. He travels to university 2 hours each day, and it would be nice for him to have some help because the cost of school is so high. Thank you.
