Mark Your Calendars!
The 2017 Northwestern Ontario Aboriginal Youth Achievement & Recognition Awards will be held Wednesday May 3rd in Thunder Bay, Ontario at the Italian Hall.
AYARA believes that recognizing a person for their achievements is a great way to build self-esteem and showcase role models while helping our youth realize their goals are attainable. The awards are based on efforts made by youth and not necessarily always entirely on accomplishments.
Nominations are being accepted now! If you know an outstanding Aboriginal Youth you would like to see recognized, nominate that person today! Nomination deadline is Friday March 10th. Click HERE to download the nomination application.
The AYARA Committee is comprised of all volunteers and community members who represent organizations in Northwestern Ontario. We are committed to encourage and reward Aboriginal youth who focus on innovative ways of learning about and planning for their future.
Thank you to The Wasaya – United Way Plane Pull that took place on October 1st. Thirteen teams of six took turns pulling a 27000lb Dash 8 aircraft to raise money for both The United Way and The NWO Aboriginal Youth Achievement & Recognition Awards!
