RE/MAX of Western Canada is once again offering $1,000 bursaries to 16 grade 12 students across western Canada through its Quest for Excellence bursary program.
Of the 16 finalists, one lucky student will also win a draw for a hot air balloon ride for two from the closest major city.
The contest is open to all grade 12 students in western Canada attending high school between September 2020 and June 2021, and who have not yet participated in graduation commencement ceremonies.
The program will open for submissions until March 15, 2021. Winners will be notified in April 2021, with a formal presentation at the students’ commencement ceremonies.
To apply, students are to submit a short online essay (maximum 1,250 words) about how they have contributed to their communities, with a focus on leadership, motivation, volunteering, and participation in charitable events or fundraising.
The Quest for Excellence bursary program was established by RE/MAX of Western Canada in 2017 to recognize the success and ongoing pursuits of western Canadian grade 12 students in relation to leadership and community contributions.
