The Flin Flon Trout Festival has extended the deadline to receive nominations for the Spirit of the Trout Festival Award. Committee Chair Hollee Babcock explains the award is for high school students who are in grades 9 to 12 and volunteer within the community. She says it’s a way to recognize their involvement and encourage other students to volunteer.
There are two 500 dollar cash prizes to be awarded, one to a female and one to a male nominee. Nomination forms must be in by Friday and are made by a parent, teacher or a member of an organization the student volunteers with. Forms are available on their website www.flinflontroutfestival.com or call Hollee at 204-271-4002.
