Who's making life better for Ontario's children and youth?
Ruth Atkinson Hindmarsh was a life-long advocate for children and youth who are growing up in difficult circumstances. She believed in the power of individuals coming together — as organizations and communities — to nurture resilience in children, reduce vulnerabilities within families, and affect lasting change in society.
In Ruth’s memory, the Hindmarsh Family and the Atkinson Foundation make an annual award of $50,000 to one of Ontario’s leading child and youth organizations. We want to recognize promising ideas, approaches and results as well as the compassion, ingenuity and courage of the people behind them. We also want to celebrate and support their efforts.
You’re invited to submit your nomination for the Ruth Atkinson Hindmarsh Award by May 12, 2014. We’re hosting a webinar to answer any questions about the nomination process. To register, please send your name and coordinates to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in collecting and telling stories about how Ontario is becoming a healthier, fairer and more inclusive place for children and youth to grow up.
