For Immediate Release
June 11, 2020

GUELPH, Ontario – The Upper Grand District School Board believes that recognition of success fosters students’ self-confidence and resilience.

In recognition of student achievement, the UGDSB holds an annual celebratory event to recognize the recipients of the Student Success: Achieving by Believing Awards. These awards were created to acknowledge the grit, resilience and perseverance that students have demonstrated in their time as a student.

The awards are given to students in Grades 8 and 12, nominated from UGDSB elementary and secondary schools.

This school year has been challenging – but the students’ ability to inspire others, to rise above and to continue to adapt have inspired the school community.

While the board was not able to hold its annual award ceremony this year, award recipients will receive their award along with words of support from their teachers, administrators and support staff. Award winners will be notified via mail over the next couple of days.
