Second annual scholarship breakfast scheduled for Feb. 14, 2018

Lethbridge School District No. 51, in partnership with the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, is once again inviting the community of Lethbridge to be a partner in recognizing student innovation. This is in keeping with Lethbridge School District No. 51’s vision - “Learners are innovative thinkers who are successful, confident, respectful, and caring."

We are busy planning the second annual Scholarship Breakfast, with proceeds to go towards the Canada 150 Innovation Creativity Entrepreneurship (ICE) Awards. These awards are annual student scholarships originally developed by the Board of Trustees to celebrate the District's vision, along with Canada’s 150th birthday. The Canada 150 ICE Awards, are presented annually to high school students who have demonstrated innovative thinking. These awarda are not about grades or tests, but focus on student work exemplifying innovation that has the potential to impact a field of study, business, industry or the community at large.

This year’s scholarship breakfast will be held on Feb. 14, 2018, Valentine’s Day, at The Coast Hotel. It promises to be a great event with an excellent opportunity for local businesses to associate themselves with innovation in our schools. In keeping with the spirit of the day and the Canada 150 ICE Awards, the theme for the breakfast will once again be, “For the Love of Innovation: Paying it Forward."

Michael Kerr, a dynamic, world-renowned speaker, is set to deliver the keynote address at this year's breakfast.
