The award recipients were recognized at a ceremony and reception hosted by Her Honour the Honourable Janice C. Filmon, C.M., O.M., Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba, at Government House. These awards are presented to female Manitoba students considering careers in the exciting fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), business, fine arts or underrepresented trades.
Five awards of $1,000.00 are granted to female students in grade 12 who have demonstrated an aptitude in an area of study that could lead to further education and/or careers in STEM, business, fine arts or underrepresented trades.
Five awards of $1,750.00 will be granted to female students who are in their first year of post-secondary study in STEM, business, fine arts or underrepresented trades programs.
Selection criteria for both of these awards will ensure the diversity of Manitoba’s population is reflected, including awards to students from Indigenous, northern and rural communities.
