Cadillac Fairview Youth of Distinction Awards

The Cadillac Fairview Youth of Distinction Awards (YODA) recognize deserving youth, 12-18 years of age or still in high school, 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.

What we do: YODA is an opportunity for Calgarians to recognize youth for their extraordinary achievements, passion and dedication to the community.
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.
