Métis Youth British Columbia launches 7th Annual Métis Youth Role Model Campaign

Métis Youth British Columbia (MYBC) is proud to announce the 7th annual Métis Youth Role Model Campaign. The campaign focuses on youth achievements and celebrates Métis Youth role models in our Métis communities. Métis Youth Role Models promote healthy lifestyles, Métis culture and awareness; strengthen Métis identity and are actively involved in their community.

Last year, MYBC recognized the following Métis Youth Role Models: Emerald Unruh, Kiana Olafson, Quinn Basso, Nicole Hall and Emily MacLeod.

In order to be eligible, Métis Youth Role Models must be between the ages of 15 and 30 and live in B.C. The MYBC Committee will select five new Métis Youth Role Models from all the eligible submissions. Selected Youth Role Models will receive $300 in gift cards and will be showcased on the MNBC website.

If there is a Métis Youth you would like to nominate for the Métis Youth Role Model Campaign, please send us a picture and a maximum 500-word write-up about why you consider them to be an outstanding youth in your community. Please note, you do not need to be a youth to nominate a Métis Youth Role Model.

Submit your nomination by 4:30 PM PST on Monday, March 1, 2021. Role models will be announced on March 22. E-mail your submission and any questions to Brittney Bertrand, Youth Program Coordinator at bbertrand@mnbc.ca
