ICE Awards Scholarship
Lethbridge School Division's ICE Award Scholarship was created in 2017, as a way to recognize students who produce and demonstrate projects that are innovative.
At the time, the scholarship was named the Canada 150 ICE Awards Scholarship, to commemorate the country's 150th birthday.
A scholarship breakfast was held that first year, as the tradition continued throughout the pandemic with virtual events in 2021 and 2022.
For the 2023, the ICE Awards Scholarship Showcase 2023 event was created in place of the breakfast. That new tradition will continue in 2024.
As for the scholarship itself, the major focus for the awards continues to be a demonstration of a project, achievement or learning endeavour that illustrates innovation.
While the main criterion for the awards is evidence of innovative thought and creativity,
projects could, but not necessarily, also have a focus on entrepreneurism: in other words,
relevance to the world of business.
Projects considered for the $1,000 scholarship can be submitted individually, or as a group project.
ICE Scholarship: Climbing to New Heights - Innovation, Creativity, Entrepreneurship
Lethbridge School Division's ICE Scholarship continues to recognize students who produce and demonstrate projects that are innovative.
Along with the scholarship itself, which comes with a $1,000 cheque, students are also recognized at a special event designed to showcase student innovation throughout the Division.
For 2024, the Division is set to host the ICE Awards Scholarship Showcase on March 20 at Chinook High School.
This event replaces the traditional scholarship breakfast, which began in 2017.
