Youth Application Deadline: March 16, 2018.

The Louise Russo Youth Awards recognize youth that exemplify the 3R’s – Respect, Responsibility and the Role of leadership through initiatives that reduce violence in their communities. The Award celebrates and honours the qualities that are important in making our communities a safe place to live, learn and play.

These individuals took the initiative to organize direct outreach and networking activities that focused on the 3R’s – Respect, Responsibility and the Role of leadership, to create a safer place to live, learn and play.

The day’s activities culminate with some exceptional young people receiving five (5) Youth Awards (individuals or teams) and three (3) Leadership Awards, attended by their peers, teachers and corporate sponsors. To date we have recognized (93) Youth and Leadership Awards in the form of a bursary towards the student’s education or program initiative.

We believe that promoting and recognizing youth initiatives provides inspiration to us all.
