Make It a Reality Award - $25,000

Ideal Recipient

Our Scholarship Committee is looking to meet applicants who have demonstrated commitment to their community, achievement in education and/or a strong capacity for leadership.

Community

Community is the fabric of our lives. We are woven together by the deeds that we do to serve one another and by our desire to witness our neighbours thriving. Working towards healthy families, schools, work and play spaces gives us opportunities to build meaningful relationships and resilient places to call home. Are you a community-builder? How do you contribute to making Winkler a great place to live?

Leadership

Leaders seek opportunities to grow ideas into action. By keeping their minds open to positive change, leaders engage and motivate community members to develop their personal potential into something bigger than themselves. Applying their knowledge and skills, leaders build and support networks that benefit the broader community. Are you a leader? How are you working with your peers to make dreams a reality?

Excellence

Excellence is developed through hard work. With every bit of concentration that we devote to our studies, we expand our minds and we prepare ourselves for a bright future. Scholars are people who focus their curiosity for learning into practices for study and skills for research. Applying this knowledge into a career is one of the greatest honours that we can obtain. Are you a scholar? How do you plan to translate your academic interests into a successful profession?
