Maria Maxwell – Student Award Recipient

Maria is the recipient of the 2000 Alberta Summer Games and Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce Legacy Fund Awards.

“Receiving this funding will allow me to be able to continue my education by allowing me to take more courses to better enhance my knowledge so when I am done my degree I can serve my community in the best way possible. This takes away some financial burden that I feel, especially with moving to Edmonton next year when I transfer to the University of Alberta. I am very honored and grateful to be a recipient of this award.”

As a student you could be supported just like Maria, to help with your school costs. Congratulations Maria!

Student Awards are now open and we are accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year! Visit – for more information.
