Nominations are now being sought for this year’s Alberta Consumer Champion Awards.
The awards recognize Albertans committed to helping foster a fair and balanced Alberta marketplace by teaching and empowering consumers.
A new “media category” has been set up for those who have done stories related to consumer issues.
In addition to the media award category, awards of Merit and Distinction may be presented in the categories of: Non-profit Organizations, Businesses, and Industry/Trade Associations.
There’s also the Minister’s Award given to individuals which have made a major long-term contribution to consumer protection and awareness in the province.
The Youth Consumer Poster Competition is also on hand for youth aged 15 to 18. Participants are invited to create an original poster and finish a research questionnaire about consumer rights and responsibilities.
Participants will choose a topic from list at www.servicealberta.ca or www.facebook.com/youthconsumerchampions.
All submissions must be received by Service Alberta’s Consumer Services Branch office by Nov. 30.
For more information, go online at www.servicealberta.ca or phone 310-0000 (toll-free) and then 1-780-427-5210.
