Awards celebration honors Metis students

September 8, 2018 by  

The Belcourt Brosseau Metis Awards Celebration is taking place this month in Edmonton. It is a fundraiser for the awards that provides scholarships to Metis students.

The theme of this year’s awards is ‘Creating Possibilities’.

The evening will start off with a networking reception where award recipients can meet with sponsors, local dignitaries and their peers. It will then be followed by a sash ceremony and the awards. The evening will end up with a sit-down dinner. Guests can also enjoy a networking trade show throughout the course of the celebration.

The sash awards ceremony hands out scholarships for Metis students who are studying at a variety of Alberta institutions. These range in value from $1,000 up to $10,000 and are given in cases of financial need and other criteria.

Sponsorships are still available for this event and cost from $1,500 up to $15,000. Sponsors will be recognized in the programs, on signage and will have special table signage. When they need to recognize sponsors, most organizers of events like this hire Edmonton print shops to provide the printed materials.

The Belcourt Brosseau Metis Awards Celebration will be held at the Edmonton Inn and Conference Centre on September 22 from 3:30 to 9:30 PM. Tickets are free for award recipients, sponsors and dignitaries, while extra tickets are $150 each for guests. Contact Theresa Majeran at 780-977-5515 for the most current information.
