Métis Youth British Columbia launches their 3rd Annual Métis Youth Role Model Campaign

Métis Youth British Columbia (MYBC) is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Métis Youth Role Model Campaign to identify amazing Youth in your community. The campaign is designed to focus on Youth achievements and provide role models for our Métis communities. Métis role models promote healthy lifestyles, Métis culture and awareness, strengthen Métis identity and are actively involved in their community. Last year, MYBC recognized amazing Métis Youth Role Models, Drew Nagao, Madison Hendry, Fergus Dalton, Brittney Bertrand and Danielle Bruce.
MYBC is seeking to promote five (5) new Métis Youth Role Models from among all eligible submissions. In order to be eligible, Métis Youth role models must be between the ages of 15 and 30 and reside in the Province of BC. Métis Youth Role Models will receive $300 in gift cards, will be showcased on the Métis Nation British Columbia website, and will have opportunities to travel within the Province to Métis Youth gatherings and events. In addition, posters of our five Role Models will be distributed to Métis Chartered Communities and Aboriginal organizations in order to promote their achievements.
If there is a Youth you would like to submit, send us a picture and write up of a maximum of 500 words on an amazing Métis Youth and why you consider them a Role Model in your community. Please note: You do not need to be a Youth to nominate a Métis Youth Role Model.
The deadline is February 13th, 2017 @ 4:30 PM PST and Role Models will be announced on February 27th, 2017. E-mail your submission to the Youth Communications & Project Assistant, Brittney Bertrand, at bbertrand@mnbc.ca or fax to (604) 557-2024.
