What’s your $1,000 idea?

Dave Mikkelsen Award for Youth

Youth in Chestermere: tell us your amazing ideas for making our community awesome and you could receive $1,000 to make your plan come to life!  

"We’re inviting youth ages 12-17 and youth organizations to apply for this award,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “Past recipients have been very innovative so we always look forward to receiving the applications.”

Last year’s winner Jay Bailey used the award towards Chestermere’s first Creative Showcase talent show. Proceeds from the event’s silent auction were donated to Synergy to support their work with youth in the community.

In 2016, winner Nathan Hermann used the funds towards a water bottle filling station at the Chestermere Skate Park.

All applicants need to do is submit an online application form and explain (in 500 words or less) how they would spend the $1,000 award.

Ideas can be big or small, support activities like sports or education, and involve 5 or 500. The only qualification is that the idea must benefit the youth of Chestermere.

For more information about this award and to fill out an application please visit www.chestermere.ca/youthaward. The deadline to apply is January 15, 2019.

The Dave Mikkelsen Award was established in 2010 to honour former Mayor Mikkelsen’s dedication to the City and its youth during his 12 consecutive years on City Council.
