Have you raised allergy awareness in your school or wider community? Have you educated others about life-threatening allergies? Are you looking for ways to pay for next year’s tuition? If so, then we have some great news for you!
Anaphylaxis Canada is now accepting applications for the 2012 Sabrina Shannon Memorial Award!
Anaphylaxis Canada will be granting two awards of $1,000 each: one to a student who is entering the first year of post-secondary education (i.e. university or college), and one to a student who is already enrolled in a post-secondary program.
This award recognizes the important role that youth play in raising awareness and educating others about life-threatening allergies. It is dedicated to the life of Sabrina Shannon, an inspiring teenager who suffered a fatal anaphylactic reaction in 2003. Since her passing, Sabrina’s parents and other members of the allergy community have kept Sabrina’s spirit alive by advocating for safer schools and communities across Canada.
To apply, please submit the following by JUNE 22, 2012:
- A completed application form (link below)
- A 500-1500 word essay, describing your efforts to raise awareness and educate others about life-threatening allergies
- Contact information for two references
- A photocopy of your acceptance letter or proof of enrollment in a post-secondary institution
