Awards & Scholarships: Excellence in Youth Development Award
This annual award recognizes excellence in projects that focus on youth recognition using a youth development model.
The Excellence in Youth Development Award was implemented as a result of the successful 2003 National Youth Development through Recreation Services Symposium held in Calgary.
The award includes a cash component of $2,000 to support future development of the winning project.

- the project's focus must be youth recreation;
- the project must be a partnership or involve a collaboration of organizations and agencies involved with youth;
- one member of the partnership must be an ARPA member; and
- youth, themselves, must be directly involved in the planning/decision making of the project.
