Eight young students from the Northland School division were honoured at the 26th annual Regional Aboriginal Recognition Awards (RARA) for their positive contributions to life in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB).

The awards recognize each of the students as Junior Achievers for their hard work in areas of school life like attendance, tradition and language, sports and community involvement.

The students were from Anzac Community School, Bill Woodward School in Anzac, Conklin Community School, Athabasca Delta Community School in Fort Chipewyan, Fort McKay School and Father R. Perin School in Janvier.

Each year, RARA lauds select Aboriginal role models in RMWB who are making strides towards promoting their culture in the community.

This year’s awards were given out at the Quality Hotel in Gregoire.
