Conexus Credit Union – Youth Leadership Award


Applications are now open for the Conexus Community Youth Leadership Award.  Graduating high school students from across Saskatchewan who are Conexus Credit Union members (or parents/guardians of applicants are members) can apply to receive one of 30 – $500 awards.

New this year is our on-line application form.  Students will be required to go to the Conexus website, to the Community – Youth Leadership Award page to review the eligibility guidelines, download the two required letters of support and complete the on- line application.  No paper or emailed copies will be accepted.  Deadline to submit applications will be midnight on March 31, 2019.

A selection committee made up of Conexus staff, will adjudicate the applications. Applicants are scored on their essay question and in three weighted categories – leadership role, community involvement, and school participation.  A student must score a benchmark of at least 65 points in order to be eligible to receive the award.  Award recipients and their school will be notified by May 4, 2018.   Conexus staff will present our award at the graduation ceremony.
