The Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC) would like to recognize young global citizens in our province with a new award. The “Outstanding Take Action Project Award” is for students in Global Issues: Citizenship and Sustainability (40S) who have undertaken exceptional Take Action Projects. All students that complete Take Action Projects should be encouraged to apply.
The award includes a cash prize, certificate and public recognition at MCIC’s Annual General Meeting and your school’s award celebration night.
The application process is now open to both first and second-semester students participating in the course. Deadline: May 18, 2018. See “Apply here” link below!
Criteria: Winners will be selected based on the criteria below. Students who are completing their Take Action Projects in the second/final term are eligible based on the same criteria, reasonably describing any aspects of the project that may not be completed by the application due date. Applicants must complete the online application which requires them to explain the following:
- Summary of project
Concept (eg: What was the main objective of your project? How did you carry it out?)
- Scope and range of project (eg: Who did/will the project reach? How many people were/will be involved or influenced?)
- Content (eg: How does the topic relate to the Areas of Inquiry? How did/will the project educate, inform, or raise awareness of an issue?)
- Personal benefit (eg: What did you learn from doing this project/about the issue/about your community?)
Details & Eligibility: Four (4) prizes of $250 will be awarded in June 2018. Individuals and groups may apply. One (1) monetary prize will be awarded per winning project; all winners will receive the “Outstanding Take Action Project Award” recognition and certificate.
