GB Alumni Book PrizesJune 7, 2021
In 2016, as part of efforts to prepare for GB's centennial (2026), a fund was launched by GB Alumni to annually award book prizes to deserving students. Each year 9 students - 3 Grade 9, 3 Grade 10, and 3 Grade 11 - are selected by GB staff and awarded $100 book prizes at the year-end celebration. The fund is maintained entirely from donations by GB Alumni, with the intention of encouraging small donations from as many alumni as possible. To date, over 40 different GB alumni have supported the fund.
Donations of $20 are appreciated, with any donations in excess of $20 treated as multi-year contributions (e.g. a $60 donation will be considered support for 3 years). Donations are acknowledged with a single charitable tax receipt and on the GB Alumni website (http://gb100.ca).
