Yes I Can Awards

The Manitoba Council for Exceptional Children's Yes I Can Awards Committee is already hard at work in preparation for an exciting Yes I Can awards celebration to be held at the Victoria Inn in Winnipeg on February 23, 2017, at 7:00 pm. Our goal, once again is to recognize students from as many of our school divisions as possible throughout Manitoba.

You are encouraged to recognize individuals in the categories as outlined including the student Yes I Can Awards and Certificate of Recognition by completing the appropriate nomination forms, attaching the required documentation and sending the information to your School Division’s Student Services Administrator/Coordinator by September 30, 2016.

Helping us promote the awards and sharing this information with school teams within school divisions is appreciated. It also would be a great idea to identify possible candidates as soon as possible to facilitate the Friday, September 30, 2016 deadline for schools to get their nominations in. Thanks again for recognizing the accomplishments of our students and their families.

Please support Yes I Can Awards through your donations.
