Call for nominations to honour local peacemakers
The YMCA of Saskatoon is seeking nominations from the public for the 2017 YMCA Peace Medallions.
These annual awards celebrate peace by recognizing one adult (or group) and one youth or young adult (26 and under) (or youth group) who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, have demonstrated a commitment to building peace within our community or elsewhere.
The YMCA believes that peace is more than the absence of violence and conflict. It is the ongoing work of building and rebuilding conditions of fairness, inclusion, empathy, security, and respect for diversity. Nominees for the peace awards do not need to be members of the YMCA.
Nomination forms may be downloaded from ymcasaskatoon.org or picked up at the YMCA. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 at 10 p.m.
On Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, these local peacemakers will be honoured at our Peace Medallion ceremony at the YMCA of Saskatoon Annual General Meeting.
YMCA Peace Week (Nov. 18-25, 2017) invites people of all ages to reflect on peace, to talk, and to take action, individually and with others. Since 1987, more than 1,500 individuals and groups across Canada have been recognized YMCA Peace Medal recipients.
