Call for Nominations: The ISCBC Together in Action Student Leadership Award

The ISCBC Together in Action (TIA) annual award program is designed to recognize and celebrate the efforts of those who demonstrate leadership and commitment to the field of invasive species. The TIA awards recognize the achievements of our Executive Director, Gail Wallin, for providing provincial and national leadership and innovation in the area of invasive species. The awards will be presented during Invasive Species Action Month, celebrated each May in British Columbia.

The ISCBC Together in Action (TIA) Student Leadership annual award program acknowledges the work of individual students who demonstrate leadership and innovation in invasive species prevention, work and management in BC. The TIA Student Leadership Award is open to public nominations (including yours!) and can be shared broadly.

To be eligible for nominations, the student must be a resident of BC, and be 19 years of age or older. They must have completed at least one year of study at a post-secondary BC institution (a BC University, college or technical school) towards a degree or diploma related to invasive species research, management, education, public outreach and/or social studies. Anyone can nominate an eligible student. Students can even nominate themselves.

The successful Student Award recipient will receive a scholarship of $1,000 to acknowledge and support them as one of BC’s future leaders in the field of invasive species.

The deadline for nominations is April 22, 2022.

The Together in Action Awards are proudly sponsored by Nat’s Nursery. Nat’s Nursery is committed to providing the best quality Pacific Northwest plants possible to the global market for restoration, reclamation, reforestation, sustainable gardening, construction and more.
