It could be a student, a teacher, a community volunteer, an Elder or a co-worker who promotes the importance of learning and connection, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The winner will be recognized with a medallion and certificate presented by Premier Akeeagok in the fall. They will also receive a $300.00 bursary to put toward their education.
