Attention grade 12 students! Are you interested in winning one of 16 $1,000 bursaries? How about the chance to ride in a hot air balloon?
If your answer is yes to either of these two questions, you will DEFINITELY want to apply for the 2022 RE/MAX Quest for Excellence Bursary Program! The contest opens Monday, September 13 and will remain open until midnight on Monday, March 14, 2022.
The contest is open to all grade 12 students attending high school between September 2021 and June, 2022 who have not yet participated in graduation commencement ceremonies. Students must be residents of Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, or the Northwest Territories.
What’s the criteria?
RE/MAX of Western Canada established this bursary years ago to recognize youths who have made a difference in their communities. If you have a track record for volunteering, fundraising for worthy causes, or caring for members of your community, you are a prime candidate for this bursary.
In order to enter, you are required to write and submit a short online essay (maximum 1,250 words) about how you have contributed to your communities, with a focus on leadership, motivation, volunteering, and participation in charitable events or fundraising.
Timeline and prizes
The contest closes on March 14, 2022, and the winners will be notified in April 2022. 16 students will be awarded a $1,000 bursary, among whom one lucky winner will receive a trip for two in RE/MAX’s famous hot air balloon from the major city closest to them.
