LOLA nominations are now open

Do you admire someone who excels as an adult learner or adult educator?
Is there a learning program or project out there that deserve extra recognition?
How about an extra-ordinary funder?

Consider this opportunity to honour these hard working and enthusiastic people and send in your nomination form for a
Life Of Learning Award (LOLA)!

The LOLAs celebrate and honour the contributions and accomplishments in Calgary’s adult learning field. The LOLAs are presented to outstanding educators, programs, supporters and learners to recognize their dedication and spirit. They highlight the value of foundational learning and the differences education makes in our community.

Calgary Learns presents awards in the following categories:
  • Adult Learner for a learner at a foundational level who loves learning, stands out in his or her efforts to keep learning and inspires others by example.
  • Learning Champion for an educator/facilitator or program designer who makes a great contribution to community-based adult foundational learning and supports the essential skills development in learners.
  • Learning Communities for a learning program/project that stands out in innovation, effectiveness and breadth of reach into the adult foundational learning community.
  • Thanks A Bunch showcases a funder (individual or corporation) whose commitment and financial contribution help support the needs of adult foundational level learners.
Go to our website for more information and forms. Nomination deadline is February 14, 2016.
