Leduc is full of outstanding young people who show us - every day, in a variety of ways - what leadership looks like. Each year, Mayor Bob Young and other members of City Council recognize these deserving young residents through the #influencers program. Do you know a young leader who deserves recognition? Help us to reward the outstanding young people in our city who show us - every day, in a variety of ways - what leadership looks like by nominating them as an #Influencer! All nominations will be recognized at a red carpet movie event on Sept. 20, hosted by Mayor Bob Young.
We define leaders as:
- those with character - they are ethical and treat others with respect
- those that serve others - they are empathetic and want to help others to success, and
- those that lead by example - they are role models, have skills in team building, and can both learn and teach
We are seeking nominations from community members for youth who will be in grade 9 through 12 in the 2018/19 academic year, and who have demonstrated success in one or more of these areas. Youth may be nominated for activities and successes in leadership for large as well as small acts, because when small acts are nurtured they can become large and large acts can become great! The City of Leduc wants to recognize the young people in our city who deserve to be celebrated for the positive impact they make in their families, their neighbourhoods, their schools, their sports teams and their social circles.
Nominees will be contacted through their school to recieve their tickets to our #Influencers: Emerging Leaders of Leduc red carpet movie event. They will recieve a copy of the leadership accomplishments listed in their nominations to keep as a token of acknowledgement from their nominator and the City of Leduc.
Nominations will be accepted between May 1 - June 30, or until we have reached capacity.
