NWAC is proud to announce the 2019 winners of the Helen Bassett Commemorative Student Awards!
In addition to her powerful work as an artist and advocate for Aboriginal land claims rights, Helen Bassett donated funds to be bestowed upon 4 Indigenous youth in post-secondary studies each year in the form of a $1000 grant. The awards are based on community involvement and a proven dedication to improving the well-being of Indigenous women, girls, Two-Spirit and gender diverse youth, and are distributed to one winner from each of the four directions: North, South, East, and West.
Please join us in congratulating these four 2019 Helen Bassett Award recipients:
From the North -- Marley Dunkers
From the South -- Allysa Mark
From the East -- Jeneva Rose Dennis
From the West -- Taylor Vodden
And we wish to thank everyone who, by their participation, showed their commitment to improving the lives of others in all of our communities.
Thank you – Meegwetch – Merci – Nakurmiik
