RAJ was presented with a BC Hydro Community Service certificate, the Power Pioneers book Voices from Two Rivers, and a $500 scholarship from BC Hydro Power Pioneers.

Pat would like to thank Dave & Sue Devitt, and Mel & Barb Peters for their valuable assistance in choosing this year’s winner from the 22 selected finalists in the Fraser Valley school districts.  Once again, choosing a winner was difficult as the submitted applicants were all excellent in their qualifications.
