The Canadian Association of Principals are proud to sponsor the Annual CAP Student Leadership Award, once again to be awarded to worthy recipients from across the country for the 2016/2017 school year.
This award is to afford principals the opportunity to recognize one of their student leaders and to enter that worthy young person as a nominee for a national scholarship. Nationally, the Canadian Association of Principals administer the scholarship program.
The CAP Student Leadership Award is designed to provide the broadest possible base upon which to evaluate candidates. For the 2016-2017 program, twelve scholarships of $250.00 each will be awarded, one scholarship per CAP provincial/territorial affiliate. Only students graduating in the final year of high school from a Canadian High School are eligible for nomination.
Each school that wishes to participate in the scholarship program are asked to nominate one student leader who has demonstrated outstanding leadership. Nominees should be in the top 20% of their class where selection criteria is not based on need. The method for selection of the principal’s nominee is a local provincial decision. To assist them with their selection, they may use an existing scholarship committee or convene a committee similar to what may have been used for other award programs.
Each nominee must complete the questionnaire following the instructions in this form (Student Leadership Application Form 2016-2017). It is recommends that Advisors aid students in filling out the questionnaire by furnishing and verifying entries that are part of the student’s official school records.
We emphasize that all materials must be submitted together, and postmarked by March 1, 2017. Incomplete materials will not be returned or considered.
Winners of the CAP Student Leadership Award will be selected in May and the winners along with their school principals will be notified in June.
