Recognizing Saskatchewan's future leaders

2022 Youth Leadership Award applications are now closed.

Are you fueled by the desire to make your corner of the world a better place? Will you be graduating from grade 12 in the 2021/2022 academic year? Do you feel like you are making a difference in your community through volunteerism? You are the future of Saskatchewan, and we want to hear from you!

The Conexus Youth Leadership Award recognizes graduating high school students who show leadership in everything they do and are guided by the cooperative principles. This is an opportunity for you, our young Conexus Credit Union members, to be celebrated for making your mark on the world.

What do Conexus Youth Leaders win?

Conexus will award ten grade 12 students across Saskatchewan with $1,500 and recognize them through our social media channels. Each winner will receive a $500 cash prize and $1,000 deposited into a Conexus term account, which can be withdrawn after one year of opening the term account. Additionally, each winner will be paired with one of Conexus’ Emerging Leaders team for a 45-minute virtual mentoring session to discuss realizing your goals, how to chase your dreams, and achieve financial well-being.

What is the award eligibility criteria?

All you have to do is tell us how you demonstrate the co-operative spirit, make your community a better place, and how you show everyday leadership in everything you do.

Anybody who applies for this award will be considered if:

  • They’re graduating from high school in Saskatchewan in the 2021/2022 academic year.
  • They or their parent/guardian are a Conexus Credit Union member and have been for at least one full calendar year.
  • They submit the application through our online portal no later than April 15, 2022.
Applications that are emailed, delivered to branches, or are missing information will not be evaluated.
