About the award
The Stacey Levitt Memorial Award was created in memory and celebration of Stacey’s life by her family through Parachute. Each year beginning in November, high school students from across Canada can apply for this award.
This award encourages Canadian youth to embody Stacey’s qualities and ideals and Parachute’s overarching goals of a long life lived to the fullest, understanding the importance of risk management and injury prevention.
Applications close at end of February and the Levitt family awards each year’s selected recipient $2,500 to help them live their life to the fullest. The award could be put toward:
- An educational endeavour
- Engagement in sports
- Investment in a travel experience
These pursuits would have resonated with Stacey, who loved school, sports and travel.
The successful recipient also receives a copy of Stacey’s book of poetry, I Am a Rose: A Life in Poetry, published by her family in 1996 after her death.
