Call for Nominations--Youth Engagement Showcase, Rural Ontario Institute

Deadline March 2, 2018

Nominations are now open for the Rural Ontario Institute's Youth Engagement Showcase: Rural communities across Ontario have the opportunity to nominate young leaders for recognition in the Youth Engagement Showcase from now until March 2, 2018.

This annual initiative profiles compelling stories of youth taking charge and tackling important issues, highlights the impact youth can have in their communities and demonstrates how different types of rural communities can successfully involve youth in addressing local challenges.

As nominations are gathered from communities across Ontario, a selection committee will identify compelling stories to be profiled on the Youth Engagement Showcase page here on the ROI site, with a photo and description that describes the youth’s accomplishments and the community of support around them:

Two youth will be selected to speak at the Parks & Recreation Ontario (PRO) Educational Forum on April 12th, 2018:

Four nominees will also be randomly chosen to receive $250 to be directed back to their registered charity of choice.  

Nomination information is available at Please support the Youth Engagement Showcase by sharing this information with your networks.
