The Spirit of the Capital Youth Awards were handed out this past week at City Hall. Since 1997, Youth Ottawa (formerly Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa) has been the proud host of the Spirit of the Capital Youth Awards. The Spirit Awards Night is an annual event that celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments of youth who are making our community, and the world, a better place. We have the honour and privilege of sharing their incredible stories, passion and dedication with our guests, in hopes of inspiring others to step up and make a difference in their own communities. Awards are presented in seven categories to reflect many different areas of interest, and to promote a more positive image of youth within the community (http://spiritawards.ca/about/).
All Saints is extremely proud of the fact that we had two individuals recognized at the awards. Ryan Coyte won the Academic Perseverance Award; presented to an individual who “has shown a passion and demonstrated perseverance for their academics, has gone above and beyond to succeed in academics and who has overcome obstacles to persist in education”. Ryan Rodrigs won the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Award for his smartphone app that regulates texting while students are behind the wheel. The award goes to an individual “who has utilized his or her talents and efforts to make a difference in society, locally, nationally or globally and demonstrates innovation and initiative in working towards an entrepreneurial or social change goal”. Congratulations to our two worthy recipients!
