Energize Workshop and Recreation Awards
The Energize Workshop provides a forum for everyone from local community volunteers to elected officials to exchange ideas and knowledge related to recreation development and its contribution to healthy communities.
Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation and the Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation (ASRPWF) join forces with the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA) every year to bring Energize to Alberta's recreation and parks community.
2013 Recreation Volunteer Recognition Awards
One of the highlights of the Energize Workshop is the Recreation Volunteer Recognition Awards. The awards are presented to four Albertans, who are recognized as leaders in developing and delivering recreational programs in their communities.
The awards are sponsored by Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation and the ASRPWF. The volunteer Energize Advisory Committee selects winners from nominations that are received.
Since the Recreation Volunteer Recognition Award began in 1977, 201 individuals have been recognized.
