The ConocoPhillips Youth of Distinction Awards (YODA) recognize deserving youth, 13-18 years of age, for the remarkable ways in which they have chosen to live. The awards are not academic, rather, they focus on leadership, friendship, overcoming personal challenge and community service.
The nomination deadline for the 2013 ConocoPhillips Youth of Distinction Awards has passed! Thank you for submitting your nominations! Click here to see the top three finalists in each category from 2012.
What we do: YODA is an opportunity for Calgarians to recognize youth for their extraordinary achievements, passion and dedication to the community. The award categories are Advocacy, Arts and Culture, Environmentalism (Individual and Group), Leadership, Peer Support, Perseverance, Sportsmanship and Volunteerism. For a detailed description of the categories, click here.
For youth interested in: Event planning, marketing, peer recognition
Year-round, a steering committee of youth meets once every two weeks and helps plan the entire ceremony, which includes picking entertainment, décor, food, etc. They also market YODA and help design the poster and other promotional items. In March, the committee chooses the finalists and recipients for each category. Additionally, they help emcee the ceremony.
