2012 Winners

Theatre Cambrian
Éditions Prise de parole

Dawn Marie Wemigwans, or "Miss" as her students call her, has a warm and effervescent personality and a huge smile. Dressed casually, she looks like a mom not "the principal." She is immediately approachable.

Nickel District Conservation Authority

A stroke of "genius," is how Paul Sajatovic describes the vision and determination of community-minded citizens who worked together in the 1960s to secure 2,415 acres of public land around Lake Ramsey for the enjoyment of all citizens. Lake Laurentian Conservation Area's green space, Lake Laurentian, nature trails, wetland areas, hiking trails, bird-watching areas, and snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails are a treasure that everyone can share.
