Recognizing Saskatchewan's future leaders

Now accepting Youth Leadership Award applications!

Are you fueled by enthusiasm to make your corner of the world a better place? Will you be graduating from grade 12 in the 2020/2021 academic year? Do you feel like you're making a difference in your community through volunteerism? Then, 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 Each winner will receive a $500 cash prize and $1,000 deposited into a Conexus term account, which can be withdrawn after one year, starting June 1, 2022.
