Youth Week Citizenship Awards

Appreciating our youth

The Youth Citizenship Award recognizes outstanding young citizens who make a difference in their communities by volunteering their time and skills. The mayor will present all youth nominated with a Citizenship Award - the top 5 nominees will receive a $100 award with the certificate. 

The winners are chosen and honoured during Burnaby Youth Week, held annually during the first week of May. The week is filled with fun games and activities.

Candidates must be 13-18 years of age, and:

  • Have made an important contribution to their community,
  • Have demonstrated qualities like leadership, commitment and enthusiasm, or
  • Have overcome adversity or are living with a limitation.


Any community member—except relatives of the nominee—can nominate a youth for the award. 

2024 nominations closed on Friday, March 8, 2024. Check back for 2025 nomination details.
