4-H Canada recognizes CIBC support of youth

July 21, 2016 - 4-H Canada has announced the recipients of the 2016 CIBC 4-H Post-Secondary Scholarships, providing support to outstanding youth who will be entering into a post-secondary education in the field  of engineering, arts, science, business, agriculture  or health, beginning in fall 2016. With the support of CIBC, eight 4-H members will each receive a $1,000 scholarship towards their post-secondary education.

4-H Canada continues to provide young Canadians with tools and guidance to build leadership skills through relevant programs and opportunities, such as post-secondary scholarships, which recognize the importance of life-long learning. 2016 marks the second year in a row that 4-H Canada’s national scholarship applications have seen a more than 60 percent increase, as well as an increased amount of scholarship dollars delivered to 4-H members across Canada.

"All of our CIBC scholarship recipients demonstrate the very best traits of 4-H youth leadership," says Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada. “We are very fortunate to have a partner like CIBC that has been supporting the advancement of 4-H youth for more than 60 years. They recognize the importance of investing in programs that help empower youth and foster leadership.”

The delivery of these programs would not be possible without the ongoing and long-term partnerships with organizations like CIBC that share this vision and recognize the importance of advancing positive youth development in Canada.

“CIBC is dedicated to helping Canada’s youth achieve their academic goals on their way to reaching their career goals and becoming strong leaders of tomorrow,” says Dino Medves, senior vice president and head of CIBC commercial banking. “On behalf of CIBC, I would like to congratulate this year’s exceptional CIBC 4-H Post-Secondary Scholarship recipients.”

Congratulations and good luck to all the 2016 CIBC 4-H Post-Secondary Scholarship recipients!
