Hosted by CAREERS: The Next Generation, on behalf of Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training, the “Game Changers in the Modern Workforce” virtual awards evening was held on November 5th 2020 to celebrate the success of High School Apprenticeship Scholarship Recipients. The event was brought to you in partnership with the Government of Alberta, the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board, CAREERS: The Next Generation and LPS Crane.
Scholarship students go above and beyond in their trades internships and apprenticeships, and it is important to acknowledge their extraordinary dedication and drive. We invited these individuals, along with their families, employers and educators to join us in recognizing and celebrating their achievements at the formal awards presentation. For 2020 we went virtual, and it was amazing to be able to connect with recipients all across the province!
This high-profile event is always well attended by industry leaders, employers, government and deputy ministers, and various representatives from Alberta’s education system. This year’s Master of Ceremonies was Gin Ford, journeyperson welder and lead actress on the upcoming tv show “Pipe Nation,” accompanied by Gord King from CAREERS: The Next Generation. There was entertainment from Freestyle-Rap World Record holder, MC RedCloud and prize giveaways for Apprenticeship Scholarship Recipients! Thank you to all who attended, and made this night a truly special event.
