Student Honoured with Next Generation Leaders Forum Award

June 08, 2017
We are incredibly proud to share that Elsa Doxtdator-Janssen (Grade 12, Seycove Secondary School) has been selected as a recipient of The Keg Spirit Foundation Next Generation Leaders Forum Award this year!

As a participant of Seycove Secondary's Work Experience Program, Elsa had the opportunity to complete her work experience with the Junior Achievement Program of BC (JABC). The Keg Spirit Next Generation Leaders Forum Award, hosted by JABC, recognizes significant progress made by individual students in developing their networking and communications skills.

Elsa, along with four other students, will be representing B.C. at an all-expenses paid trip to attend The Next Generation Leaders Forum in Ontario this August. The weeklong forum provides opportunities for students to learn the business and networking skills needed to lead organizations of the future through leadership training and inspiration.

Elsa will also be celebrated for this award in person and on stage at the Junior Achievement Canada (JA Canada) 'Celebrate JA!' event on June 22nd.

We wish Elsa the best of luck with her next chapter, attending UBC's Sauder School of Business on a full, four-year scholarship. Congratulations!
