An annual Cranbrook tradition is the presentation of the Canada Day Citizenship Awards to deserving youth, and on Tuesday, July 1, at the Moir Park Canada Day celebrations, Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski handed out the awards to nine students — three from Laurie Middle School, three from Parkland and three from Mount Baker Secondary.

The students so honoured have, through their efforts, made Cranbrook and the schools better places. After the on-stage presentations, the mayor and students gathered for a group photo op with Cranbrook's youth ambassadors.
