École J.B. Mitchell School’s Global Kidizens were recognized for their work by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society on May 20 at the Young Humanitarian Awards.
The 28 members of Global Kidizens in Grades 5 and 6 reached out to their community and around the world with three major projects.
The first raised $2,500 for Winnipeg Harvest’s Baby Formula Drive. That turned into $10,000 when corporate sponsors joined. Next was a push to raise enough food for approximately 40 families for the Christmas Cheer Board. Finally, the group raised $300 for a well in Zimbabwe and $400 to buy goats in developing countries.
Members of Global Kidizens are: Damon Barteaux, Serena Chartrand, Lily Danis, Chelsey De Zilva, Dariya Fedorenko, Dustin Fraser, Ayva Khan, Grace Klassen, Magnus Kurbis-Jacques, Elise Luik, Matthew MacVicar, Tyler Matthewson, Atticus McIlraith, Bianka Moffitt, Brooklyn Motkaluk, Ashley Nfon, Alexander Noschese, Victoria Pelletier, Sumika Raban, Tal Shlezinger, Toni Shulman, Emelyne Surville-Barland, Iris Tencha, Belle Thornton, Basel Tobail, Arina Tseragotin, Jesse Vodon, and Thomas Zaburdyaev.
