Awards & Recognition Programs


Association Awards

The Manitoba School Boards Association sponsors several awards that are presented each year.

New for 2024: the Provincial Executive approved moving the Student Citizenship Awards program into its own event - separate from the March Annual Convention. The presentations will take place next spring at the division and/or school level to enable family, friends, and members of the school community to be present. 

  • Student Citizenship Awards recognizes outstanding young people throughout Manitoba who are active participants in their communities and schools. Students in regular attendance at a Manitoba public school are eligible. These awards are presented at the school level at a meaningful time.
  • The Presidents' Council Award celebrates exemplary service and outstanding achievement, innovative thinking and personal initiative, and lasting and pervasive impact in the field of public education. This award is presented each year at the Annual Convention in March.
  • Long Service Trustee Recognition honours trustees with 12, 16, 20, 30 and 40 years of school board service. This award is presented each year at the Annual Convention in March.

Information on nomination procedures and deadlines is distributed to school boards annually.

Mark Dickof Memorial Scholarship Award

The Mark Dickof Memorial Scholarship Award has been established to recognize the important role of mental health leadership and advocacy among youths aged 14 to 18 at the secondary school level in Manitoba, in terms of promoting action, awareness and greater sensitivity to / de-stigmatization of mental health and wellbeing, either within their school, local or provincial communities. Instituted by Winnipeg City Councillor Brian Mayes, in partnership with the Manitoba School Boards Association and the Canadian Mental Health Association (Manitoba Chapter), the award will be presented annually to a student or team of students in the public education system according to two general categories: urban (Winnipeg) and rural/northern, with each category qualifying for one (1) $250.00 prize each year.

Application forms will be posted on this webpage when they become available each year in the late winter/early spring.

TADD Scholarships/Bursaries

Each year, TADD Manitoba sponsors two scholarships and two bursaries to deserving Manitoba high school students. Preference will be given to those students who are actively involved in their TADD school groups/committees; however, it is not a requirement. 

Complete details of the program, including eligibility rules and applications forms, will be posted when available.
