New award category
The Lyle Benko Future Generations Award was created by RCE Saskatchewan in grateful recognition of Lyle Benko, who passed away in February of 2016. Lyle was a founding co-coordinator of the RCE and was an inspiration to so many in the area of education. He was extremely passionate about leaving next generations a more sustainable future. A fitting tribute first played at the 2016 event can be viewed from our organization web-site at www.saskrce.ca.
This award will recognize a project led by a K-12 teacher/educator/student (or group of K-12 teachers/educators/students) for their outstanding contributions to Education for Sustainable Development in Saskatchewan. Every applicant is automatically reviewed as a potential recipient of the Lyle Benko Future Generations Award.
Events of this caliber are possible only through the generous support of sponsors.
