About the Awards
Each year, Townshippers’ Association has the pleasure of recognizing the achievements and contributions of fellow Townshippers through the Young Townships Leader Award and the Outstanding Townshippers Award.

The Outstanding Townshippers Award recognizes the dedication, generosity, and talent of people and groups who are contributing positively to the Eastern Townships English-speaking community. The Young Townships Leader Award recognizes youth ages 15 to 35 who have shown leadership within the English-speaking community of the historical Eastern Townships, and encourages younger citizens to become actively involved in their communities by celebrating their achievements, commitment, and efforts; its cash prize is made possible each year through the generous support of the provincial and federal governments, as well as local schools and businesses, including Cass Funeral Homes, Global Excel Management, NAV Canada, and Stanstead College.

In addition, the Association hosts Excel in the Estrie, an annual essay and short video contest that invites graduating high school seniors from across the historical Eastern Townships to share stories of overcoming challenges – academic, social or personal – on their path to graduation and to share their plans for living and working in the region in the future. The winning entries are awarded a cash prize to help them as they embark on post-secondary studies. This year, the prize was made possible thanks to the support of the provincial and federal governments, Global Excel Management, and Cass Funeral Homes.
