Applications for the 2017 Vimy Pilgrimage Award will be available in September 2016.


The Vimy Pilgrimage Award recognizes the actions of young people who demonstrate outstanding service, positive contributions, notable deeds, bravery or leadership. Their acts may have served their peers, schools, communities, province or country. Scholastic achievement is not a criterion for this award. 

The Vimy Pilgrimage award consists of a fully funded, week-long educational program in Belgium and France, to study Canada’s tremendous First World War effort. This week, scheduled for April 3 – 11, 2016 and organized by The Vimy Foundation, includes daily field trips to important First World War sites. A total of 20 students will be selected for the program this year.

Applicants are required to submit a motivation letter (500-word maximum) outlining the reasons why they are worthy of the award. In choosing award winners, the Award Committee will put great weight on the enthusiasm and intent illustrated in the motivation letter. Applications must also include two letters of support by a teacher, guidance counselor or principal; service club; community, provincial or federal organization; or a member of the community.
