Kelowna, B.C. (September 8, 2014) – RE/MAX of Western Canada is renewing the organization’s commitment to our future community leaders by offering $16,000 in bursary funds through its annual Quest for Excellence Program. One recipient—in addition to his/her bursary—will receive a hot air balloon ride for two.
The Quest for Excellence Program recognizes the pursuits in leadership and community contributions of Western Canadian students. High school students graduating in 2015 from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and Northwest Territories are encouraged to write an essay to convey the contributions they have made to enrich the lives of others and their communities: Through leadership, motivation, volunteering and participation in charitable events or fundraising.
“It’s inspiring to see these young adults making such a difference in their communities,” says Marie Sheppy, Senior Coordinator, Corporate Affairs, RE/MAX of Western Canada. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to recognize their efforts and assist them in their future endeavours.”
Sixteen winners will be selected from entries received online at remax.ca. Each winner will receive a $1,000 RE/MAX Quest for Excellence bursary. All 16 bursary recipients will be placed in a draw and one lucky student will receive a hot air balloon ride for two from the closest major city. The application deadline is March 9, 2015. Award recipients will be notified in April 2015, with a formal presentation at the students’ commencement ceremonies.
“We’re once again honoured to announce our Quest for Excellence Bursary Program to reward some of the outstanding young adults throughout Western Canada. Their efforts have benefitted their communities and this is our way of recognizing that,” says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada.
