CNIB National Youth Council Leadership Award - Application deadline May 4th

The National Youth Council believes it is important to recognize youth who are blind and partially sighted and are reaching above and beyond to make a difference in their community, province, or country. The council would like to acknowledge the accomplishments of these leaders by offering an opportunity for them to share their impact.

Once a recipient has been selected, their accomplishments will be broadcasted on CNIB's social media. The recipient of the Leadership Award will be given a plaque and $250 monetary prize during one of CNIB's Annual General Meetings to recognize their accomplishments. Travel, accommodation, and meal costs are covered for the recipient (and guest if the recipient is a minor).

To be considered for the Leadership Award, applicants must be a CNIB client between 15 and 30 years of age and be reaching above and beyond to make a difference in their community, province, or country. The application form, personal statement, and two Letters of Reference are to be submitted together to by Friday, May 4, 2018.

The application form is available online. For more information, visit CNIB National Youth Council. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to receiving your application!
