The essay will next be sent to a contest for the best essays from the approximately sixty Optimist Clubs in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana and Northern Wyoming. The prize in this contest is a $2,500 post-secondary scholarship.
Grade 8 Student Lazaya V. has been selected as the 2017 Southern Alberta Indigenous Youth Awards (S.A.I.Y.A) recipient for sports. Only one student from each of the 12 categories is selected and Lazaya was their pick! Lazaya is a dedicated athlete, participating on most of the school athletic teams including volleyball, basketball, badminton and soccer. Outside of school, Lazaya is a goaltender for her hockey team, and was even scouted to be the goaltender of the Native women's peewee team. Her teamwork, positive attitude and motivation as an athlete are both inspiring and admirable. Congratulations to Lazaya!
