The Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award DEADLINE EXTENDED


(The following is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to be an endorsement by the Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education.)

The Honourable Arthur J. LeBlanc, ONS, QC., Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia has announced the Lieutenant Governor’s Respectful Citizenship Award will be awarded again in 2022.

This award recognizes those who have developed a project or activity that demonstrates leadership and commitment to creating safe and inclusive spaces in schools and communities in Nova Scotia.

Twenty-two awards can be given annually, two within each Regional Centre for Education (RCE) and Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP), two in the Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey (MK) board, and two African Nova Scotian students from across the province. We recognize our province has a diverse student population, and we strive to be reflective of this.

One will be an individual student award, and the other will be a team award for two or more people (team may include adults).  An additional two awards can be given if a student is homeschooled or enrolled in private school is a successful applicant.

To be nominated, youth must be a registered student in Nova Scotia and enrolled in a grade from Primary to 12.  Nominations will close on May 18th, 2022 and the Lieutenant Governor will present the awards on June 22nd, 2022.
