Premier’s Awards for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport

The Province of British Columbia and the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council (I·SPARC) have collaborated to establish the Premier’s Awards for Aboriginal Youth Excellence in Sport to celebrate the outstanding achievements of Indigenous youth athletes throughout the province.

The Premier’s Awards recognizes athletes who have achieved excellence in performance sport, are regarded for their leadership qualities, are committed to pursuing a higher education, and are recognized as community role models both on and off the field of play.

Provincial recipients will receive an invitation to attend a special Indigenous Youth Sport Leadership Forum held at Gathering our Voices in Richmond, March 20-23, 2018.
