Wetaskiwin and Area Leaders of Tomorrow Awards

The Leaders of Tomorrow Award is a volunteer recognition program which enables community organizations and individuals to publicly recognize the contributions of children and youth. The purpose of the Leaders of Tomorrow Award Program is to encourage the nominees to continue their involvement in volunteerism and leadership activities, as well as acknowledge that all voluntary contributions are valuable to the community.

The City of Wetaskiwin, through Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), is proud to be a supporter and sponsor of the Wetaskiwin and Area Leaders of Tomorrow Awards since the commencement of the program in 1995. FCSS believes that volunteerism is the heart of our community and wholeheartedly supports the recognition of our young volunteers.
