2013 Mark of Excellence Awards Sponsorship
Junior Achievement is a non-profit registered charitable organization which has been
working with youth in Saskatchewan since 1977. Through a new partnership with
the Humboldt Chamber of Commerce, we are now able to offer our programs in the
Horizon School Division. Our programs teach about jobs, business, work readiness skills, financial literacy, and the value of diversity in the school and workplace. Programs are delivered by volunteers from local businesses at no cost to schools. To offer these programs we need your support. Sponsorship costs, benefits and available programs are outlined below:
- $300 payable to Humboldt
Chamber of Commerce to cover materials and administration
- We train your
employee(s) in one of our programs and the employees deliver programs
- Presentation times are
flexible around employee availability
- Recognition of company
sponsor is worked throughout
- Schools are asked to
recognize sponsors in classroom/school newsletters.
- Support in terms of
provision of volunteers or financial support only is also possible

Regional Chamber Scholarship
The purpose of the scholarship is to support
our local youth and our local educational institutes while, at the same time,
addressing the employment needs of our Chamber members.
In the spirit of our work as a Chamber, we have designed the criteria and eligibility of the scholarship to address the needs of our members. The scholarship is available to students who are planning on enrolling in the fall of 2013 in any first-year St. Peter’s College (SPC) or Carlton Trail Regional College (CTRC) program.
To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must:
· Be currently employed with, or have been employed in the past, with a Chamber
· Demonstrate commitment and involvement with business, industry and/or community within the Humboldt region
· Provide a letter of reference from their HDCC employer
Additional consideration will be given to those who demonstrate interest in pursuing their careers in the Humboldt district.
Proof of enrollment will need to be provided in order to receive the scholarship.
What are we looking for from YOU?
The HDCC will commit $1,000 per year to this scholarship fund.
As a member of the Chamber, you can partner with us and provide additional funds for this award. Given your interest in ensuring long-term sustainability in education and the growth of our region’s economy, we are asking you to join us by contributing $250 per year to this award.
What are the benefits of YOUR participation?
As our partner, you will be recognized as such, in the media, advertising, on our website etc.
At the same time, partnering with us in this initiative allows you to show your student staff members that you support them in their endeavors to pursue post secondary studies and has the potential to increase the participation and retention of rural students in our region.
Please contact DonnaLyn Thorsteinson, Executive Director of the HDCC at 682-4990 or email email@example.com for more information or to participate in helping us make a significant and real difference to the youth of our region.
