The winners have been picked!
Quote:

Anaphylaxis Canada would like to congratulate the winners of the first
annual Sabrina Shannon Memorial Award - Erika Ladouceur from Victoria
B.C. and Davida Houston from Thornhill, Ontario.

Both recipients demonstrated a strong commitment and dedication to
raising allergy awareness in their communities with their keen
initiative and willingness to make a difference.

The award is dedicated to the life of Sabrina Shannon, an inspirational
teenager who tragically suffered a fatal anaphylactic reaction in 2003.
Her parents, Mike Shannon and Sara Shannon, have kept Sabrina's spirit
alive by advocating for safer school environments. Sabrina's Law,
landmark legislation passed in Ontario in 2005, has continued to
influence school board policies in Canada.

We encourage you to read more about our winners and their allergy
awareness efforts by visiting: http://tinyurl.com/2w4xw93 .

A reminder from Anaphylaxis Canada:

Don't forget, the deadline for our Sabrina Shannon Memorial Award is June 22, 2012! Please forward this reminder to a teenager or young adult in your life to let them know about this exciting scholarship opportunity.

We will be granting two awards of $1,000 each - one to a student who is entering the first year of post-secondary education (i.e. university or college) and one to a student who is already enrolled in a post-secondary program.

The award recognizes the role of youth in raising awareness and educating others about life-threatening allergies. It is dedicated to the life of Sabrina Shannon, an inspiring teenager who passed away in 2003 after a fatal anaphylactic reaction at school. Since her passing, Sabrina’s parents and other members of the allergy community have rallied around her memory, advocating for allergy-safe schools and communities across Canada.
