KAMLOOPS - Member of Parliament Cathy McLeod is pleased to announce the launch of the MP Youth Awards for the riding of Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo.

“During my eight years as the Member of Parliament, I have been given the opportunity to meet with hundreds of local community leaders who contribute to making Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo a better place in a variety of ways. I am always impressed by how many of those who are contributing to our community are our youth,” McLeod says.

“Young Canadians are heavily involved in a variety of fields and often do so quietly, without a great deal of recognition. That is why I am pleased to establish the MP Youth Awards for 2016,” MP McLeod says.

Intended for youth in elementary, middle, and secondary school, the awards will recognize local leaders from our riding in a number of specific fields. These include: Volunteerism, Agriculture, Science and Environment, Arts and Culture, Sports and Caring Youth.

An independent panel will join Mrs. McLeod in reviewing the submissions to determine who will receive each award at a formal reception in May 2016.

“I encourage everyone to nominate a young person who you think deserves recognition before April 30, 2016,” McLeod says.

For more information, contact McLeod’s office at 250-851-4991, or cathy.mcleod.c1@parl.gc.ca.
