A youth from the Bay of Islands has been named one of four winners of substantial scholarships and learning experiences through 4H Canada.
As a recipient of one of the 2018 4-H Canada Leadership Excellence Awards of Distinction, McAuley Bellows will receive a $20,000 scholarship towards four years of post-secondary studies. He and the other winners will also be matched with a high-impact mentor who plays a leadership role in their industry and community.
Leadership Excellence Awards of Distinction are 4-H Canada’s most prestigious and highly-sought after scholarship and is made possible through a generous partnership with the Canadian National Railway Company, a long-time supporter of 4-H Canada and strong champion for advancing leadership in communities across Canada.
This annual award recognizes four youth leaders: outstanding, accomplished youth who embody the 4-H youth movement and demonstrate personal development, community impact, and leadership excellence in each of 4-H Canada’s four leadership development pillars.
Bellows earned the award for the community engagement and communications pillar.
The other winners included Emma Kaliel of Alberta, recipient for the science and technology pillar; Audrey Morneau of Quebec, recipient for the environment and healthy living pillar; and Emmett Sawyer of Alberta, recipient for the sustainable agriculture and food security pillar.
