About Alberta Champions Society
Alberta Champions Society in Recognition of Community Enrichment was formed to commemorate, recognize and honour those Albertans that have made a significant contribution to the community in the city of Calgary and around Alberta. This will be achieved by creating “Fields of Fame” around the city as tributes to men and women of the past who contributed to the Alberta of today.
This recognition would serve two purposes:
- Preserving Alberta’s history and honouring the individuals who made strong contributions to it.
- Inspiring current citizens to achieve greater goals.
Our Student Contest
Alberta Champions has been offering Student Contests since 2010 to promote greater awareness of important Albertans and their roles in building our community.
Our 14th annual contest connects Alberta students with important Alberta pioneers, founders, builders, innovators and Indigenous leaders; and inspires them to emulate these “champions”.
Students from across Alberta can enter in two divisions:, Grades 4 to 6 as well as Grades 7 to 9 who may submit their choice of a story, essay, poetry, video, artwork, or other media which includes accompanying script.
Students grades 4-9 write about great Albertans, catch the inspiration, start to emulate the champions, begin their community involvement, learn good citizenship, and can WIN GREAT PRIZES!
In the past 14 years Alberta Champions has awarded over $30,000 in cash prizes to students. This is a win-win. Students can not only learn about outstanding Albertans in our history and build their citizenship skills but are also motivated by the possibility of winning significant prizes.
