Scotiabank Bright Future Young Leaders Award
Scotiabank has a new international youth award program, the Scotiabank Bright Future Young Leaders, to recognize youth who make outstanding contributions to their communities.
The award program is open to youth, ages 16-24. To be eligible, applicants must complete 100 hours of volunteerism in a minimum of three of the Scotiabank's six philanthropic pillars: education, arts, health, social services, sports and environment.
Applicants log their hours at the award program website and submit an essay describing the impact of their volunteerism on charitable organizations, their community and themselves. Essays will be reviewed by an international panel of jurors, and 12 youths will be recognized with a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choice and a tablet computer for their personal use.
