Kind Heart Awards Program

Everyone knows a neighbour that’s always there when you need them! They bring over a meal when you’re sick, plow out your driveway, shovel your walk, or help get the crop off.  They do these things without being asked or expecting anything in return because they have a “kind heart”!

We want to celebrate these acts of kindness that happen every day that make our communities such great places to live.  That’s why we have the Kind Heart Awards!

These awards ensure that those who do good deeds do not go unnoticed.  They also foster community spirit and encourage residents to help out when others are in need.

All residents and organizations are encouraged to participate in the Kind Heart Awards Program by nominating anyone who deserves an award.  Nominees will receive a letter of recognition, card, small gift and a pin.

The acts of kindness eligible for nomination will be diverse, and the County would like to receive nominations for a wide variety of good deeds.  An award will be given out for any act that helps another resident in need.

All residents living within the County of Grande Prairie boundaries are eligible to participate.  The program is ongoing, and there is no deadline for nominations.

Kind Heart Awards Recipients

Kind Heart Awards were presented to the residents featured on this Wall of Honour, who deserve recognition and thanks for their acts of kindness and generosity.  Their willingness to help and their selfless good deeds make the County a better place to live.

Grant Wagner: Nominated by Trena Huson for always lending a helping hand to families in the Clairmont Community. During a particularly cold snap last winter, a family was dealing with frozen pipes, and Grant has no problem crawling underneath their house to help them out. When Trena had a toy flushed down her toilet, Grant didn’t hesitate to come over and remove the toy then took the time to explain to her grandchildren why flushing toys down the toilet isn’t good! Grant is a great neighbour and the community of Clairmont thanks him.
