The winner will receive two tickets to the Green Awards ceremony, and a $500 cheque will be awarded to the student or group at the ceremony.

“There are so many young leaders in the province who are doing great things for the environment,” says Dave Charleson, General Manager, Enbridge Gas New Brunswick. “We see the importance of nurturing and encouraging that leadership. The Student Award helps us recognize that hard work and dedication.”
