South­west stu­dents re­ceive Saskatchew­an Youth Ap­pren­tice­ship In­dus­try schol­ar­ships

The Southwest Booster - - MARKET PLACE -

A hand­ful of South­west stu­dents were re­cently an­nounced as win­ners of Saskatchew­an Youth Ap­pren­tice­ship (SYA) In­dus­try Schol­ar­ships.

Prov­ince wide, this year’s awards were pre­sented to 100 grad­u­at­ing high school stu­dents from 72 dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties. Stu­dents re­ceiv­ing the schol­ar­ships were re­quired to com­plete the Saskatchew­an Youth Ap­pren­tice­ship pro­gram and are plan­ning to em­bark on a ca­reer in the skilled trades.

In or­der to uti­lize their $1,000 schol­ar­ships, stu­dents must demon­strate they are ac­tively pur­su­ing a ca­reer in the skilled trades within two years of grad­u­a­tion. They can achieve this by com­plet­ing a pre-em­ploy­ment pro­gram or by reg­is­ter­ing as an ap­pren­tice within the prov­ince and suc­cess­fully com­plete Level 1 tech­ni­cal train­ing.

Each year, ed­u­ca­tors co-or­di­nat­ing the Saskatchew­an Youth Ap­pren­tice­ship pro­gram in their schools are in­vited to nom­i­nate grad­u­at­ing stu­dents for the schol­ar­ships.
